In the release, Sityodtong explained how excited he was to have Alvarez on board.

“I am thrilled to announce that multiple-time world champion Eddie Alvarez will be joining ONE Championship on a multiple-bout contract. Eddie is one of the world’s best martial artists in the world, and is no doubt a tremendous addition to the ONE roster. The ONE Championship roster is incredibly deep with talents such as Shinya Aoki, Eduard Folayang, and Amir Khan, among others. I am excited to have Eddie in that mix and to see some amazing matchups and performances. This is no doubt one of the biggest athlete signings in the history of ONE Championship,” he noted.

Alvarez, who is currently 29-6 in his career, last fought against Dustin Poirier in the UFC. He suffered a second-round stoppage defeat in the fight. Alvarez also had a statement about the signing. You can see his statement below.
