Reports starting surfacing that Alvarez could fight Dustin Poirier in a rematch at UFC on Fox 30, but the Philadelphia native says he isn’t again until a new contract is signed with the UFC.
“It’s not f*cking happening,” he said on The MMA Hour. “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.”
The former champion just wants to get a deal done because he has some fighters to beat up.
“I want to sit down with the UFC and just come to an agreement,” Alvarez said. “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.”
Prior to the run with the UFC, a potential future free agent in Alvarez competed in Bellator MMA, where he won the lightweight title twice.
