News: Eddie Alvarez officially signs with ONE Championship

After months of speculation, ONE Championship have officially announced the signing of former UFC lightweight champion “The Underground King” Eddie Alvarez to a multi fight contract.

Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, was understandably pleased with his capture of the high profile free agent’s signature.

“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.”

“The Underground King” is a multiple time former world champion and will arrive in ONE looking to add yet another strap to his trophy cabinet in what is likely to be the final stop of his illustrious career.
