Eddie Alvarez’s (probable) final bout under Bellator Fighting Championships’ watch will take place October 12th inside Caesars Windsor in Canada.
The impending free agent meets lighteight Patricky “Pitbull” Freire at “Bellator 76.”
UFC president Dana White and co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta have publicly recruited Alvarez over the past several months. They recently nabbed Bellator middleweight champ Hector Lombard from their stateside rival. However, Lombard’s big league debut didn’t quite live up to expectations.
The event will also showcase the opening round of Bellator’s eight-man Featherweight Tournament.
Spike.com will offer a live stream of the night’s prelims starting at 7PM ET/4PM PT. MTV2 will then broadcast the main card at 8PM ET/PT.
Of course, fans can also stream the entire event live right here on 5thRound.com.
