Former Bellator MMA lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez 's contract dispute is over, and he's returning to the California-based promotion to face the man who took his title.

The rematch with reigning titleholder Michael Chandler will serve as the co-main event of Bellator's first-ever pay-per-view offering, Bellator 106, which takes place Nov. 2 at California's Long Beach Arena. Former UFC champs Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Tito Ortiz clash in the headliner.

Would rather see him in the UFC but at least he's getting paid.

so if Alvarez loses again then what? Put him in the tourny again and again until he finally beats Chandler?

Yeah it does seem like he is in an incredibly bad spot if he loses. Can they even afford to pay him now to be a tournament fighter? Good for him collecting a paycheck again though... probably getting tough on the finances to be sitting out so long.

Awesome news. At this point, I just want to see Eddie fighting again.

That said, LOL at Bellator's "where title shots are earned not given" malarkey being put out to pasture.

So what if the Bellator PPV only does 30K buys? Doesn't that mean they couldn't meet the financials of the UFC in terms of buy rate points?

IMO this is only going to hurt Bellator in terms of negotiations with fighters Zuffa wants. Phone Post 3.0

Alvarez is in a tough situation, I don't think he will ever beat Chandler, Chandler is too good. Hope Eddie gets out of his contract but would the UFC sign a guy that just lost in Bellator?

Personally I think he could be in any shape and Chandler will finish him, he is too good in my eyes.

You do know there was a widely publicized title rematch clause instituted in 2013 for Bellator, right? Phone Post

I magine Eddie feels like fighting for Bellator is better the nnot fighting until after September of 2014..He beats Chandler, he has to fight the trilogy. He loses, he's free to go.

Regardless, War Eddie! Glad to finally have a return date for him!
