Former UFC Champion Eddie Alvarez Officially Joins ONE Championship

High valued free agent Eddie Alvarez has a new fighting home as he has officially joined ONE Championship with an exclusive deal inked on Monday

Eddie Alvarez is moving to ONE Championship.

The former UFC and Bellator lightweight champion has inked an exclusive contract to join the Asia-based promotion after entering free agency over the summer.

Alvarez and ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong announced the news on Monday.

Following a loss in his last fight to Dustin Poirier in July, Alvarez completed his most recent UFC contract and he looked forward to testing out free agency.

Obviously as a multi-time champion with a resume that reads like a who’s who list of future Hall of Famers, Alvarez was going to be a high priority target for a lot of different promotions.

Ultimately it was ONE Championship who was able to get a deal done to sign Alvarez to an exclusive deal with plans to book him a fight in the very near future.

Alvarez joins a growing ONE Championship roster but he is undoubtedly the most high profile free agent the organization has added since signing former Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren.
