Scott Coker Open To Gil Melendez Vs. Eddie Alvarez

A lightweight clash between Strikeforce Champ Gilbert Melendez and Bellator Champ Eddie Alvarez may be on the horizon.

Scott Coker appears to be very open to the challenge Bellator FC issued him:

“We are open to fighting other fighters in other leagues. Doing co-promotions and fighting other fighters from other leagues is never going to be an issue. It just a matter of how do we do it? What's the deal? We'll sit down and give it a shot. I would love to see that fight between Eddie and Gilbert. It comes down to details, like, after the fight's over, who owns the intellectual property rights? Is it them? Is it us? Do we co-share it? There's a tremendous amount of points to be negotiated. And then is it on our broadcast platform? Is it on their broadcast platform? What rights are we going to retain? What rights are they going to retain? What if he wins the title? Is there an automatic rematch clause? It just goes on and on and on. But you know what? We got it done with the Fedor piece, and so I feel like we can do it with anybody.”
