The legal battle between Edddie Alvarez and Bellator doesn’t appear to be settling down, as the promotion’s former lightweight champ has announced via Twitter that the two parties are headed to a courtroom. In addition, Alvarez has stated he intends to see the legal fight through, which is over whether Bellator has in fact matched a previous contact offer from the UFC.

The 29 year-old vet posted on his Twitter account:

We will be going to Trial And there will be NO settlement I want to see this thing through and Let the truth come out in the End

I am in No Hurry This has always been a Marathon for me Not a sprint and Time will only make me More Dangerous when I fight , I promise.

Alvarez (24-3) hasn’t fought since October when he stopped Patricky Freire in the first round. The win followed another quick stoppage win over Shinya Aoki last August. The only man to defeat Alvarez during his four year run with Bellator is current lightweight champ Michael Chandler.

Since Alvarez is currently unable to compete, at least in a sanctioned event, the fighter also relayed on Twitter:

Miami has Unsanctioned fights somewhere  for Cash , Told my wife I might need to take the drive down there on the Weekend 2 stay sharp

The highly regarded fighter also revealed that he’s sold some investment property, made some money from the sale, and that in addition, he and his family plan to move to Boca Raton, Florida. Alvarez is a member of the Florida based Blackzilians squad.
