He regrets nothing…
- Eddie Alvarez recently spoke about his contract issues with Bellator and more. Here are the highlights…
On What He Learned About MMA Contracts: "I learned that a lot of these contracts are written up one-sided, just completely one-sided. That's not a secret. They're totally one-sided and you don't have much of a choice. You sign it and fight, or you don't fight. So you sign it, fight, and shut up."
On Not Getting To Go To The UFC: "I don't have any regrets, because I tried my best," Alvarez said. "I really tried my best to get there, you know? I did. It wasn't like Bellator sent me a contract and I just signed it and said, 'To hell with the UFC.' I put my best foot forward trying to get over there and fight for a title. I'm very happy with my efforts to try to get there and do what I thought my fanbase wanted me to do, and do what I felt would get me to that spot. But I can't have any regrets about what happens from here on out. I just can't."
On His Feeling Towards The Sport: "I learned some things that I'm happy for, but my feelings toward the sport are the same," Alvarez said. "I love this sport. The business aspect of it, none of us can change."
