Elite Xtreme Combat has signed former Bodog welterweight champ Eddie Alvarez to a three-fight deal according to a report from Sam Caplan.
The contract will also allow Alvarez to compete in select M-1 Global events as well. The first fight of his new deal will take place on January 25th at the next ShoXC event on January 25th at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey when Alvarez takes on Ross Ebanez.
The fight will take place at 160 lbs, the weight class that Alvarez will be fighting at inside the promotion.
Alvarez has not fought since winning a unanimous decision over Matt Lee in July. Alvarez was scheduled to face off against Nick Thompson in a rematch of their April fight in which Thompson stopped Alvarez with strikes and handed him the first loss of his career. The fight was postponed after Thompson suffered a shoulder injury during training and then finally cancelled after Thompson pulled out for a second time.
