Eddie Alvarez is not ready to fight until UFC offers him a new deal

Alvarez currently has one fight left on his contract and is coming off a win against Justin Gaethje.

“It’s not f*cking happening. I’m not fighting until I get a new deal. The only thing we spoke of was re-signing and we haven’t come to that agreement yet. So I’m guessing there’s not going to be an opponent or a bout agreement in the mail unless I’m ready to re-sign. So when we come to agreement to re-sign, then I’m sure there will be a bout agreement in the mail,” he said.

Poirier and Alvarez had fought back in May 2017 at UFC 211 but the match was ruled a no contest after an accidental knee to the head of a grounded fighter.

UFC should stop playing games

Alvarez then went on to note that the UFC should stop playing games and added that he has some unfinished business.

“I want to sit down with the UFC and just come to an agreement. I feel like the best guys are (in the UFC). I still have a couple guys in the division that I want to take out and have on my resume so I definitely have some unfinished business here. UFC needs to stop playing games. They know what I mean,” he added.

A showdown with Nate Diaz is another option for Alvarez. Diaz is apparently set to return in August and Alvarez was always vocal about his interest in fighting Diaz. But then again, the ‘Underground King’ is not ready to change his decision and could wait until UFC decides to give him a new deal.
