UFC News: Eddie Alvarez confirms Anthony Pettis fight, date TBD

Former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez officially confirmed on Twitter Friday that his rumored fight with Anthony Pettis is a go, and will be taking place in Boston.

While not announced officially, the belief is that the fight will be on the UFC Fox Sports 1 show set for January 17th at Boston's TD GArden, headlined by Bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw vs. Dominick Cruz.

One can make the case that with just those two fights alone, it is the biggest show the company has put on FS1 in their history.
