On Friday, former Bellator MMA lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez announced he has a return to the Octagon set for January. The bout would put Alvarez against former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis in Boston.
The UFC has yet to confirm the bout.
Earlier this week, the UFC announced that they would be traveling to Beantown on Jan. 17 for a FOX Sports 1 card that will be headlined by a bantamweight title fight between current title holder TJ Dillashaw and former champ Dominick Cruz.
The event, UFC Fight Night 81, will be held at Boston’s TD Garden.
