Eddie Alvarez is no longer on the roster at ONE Championship.

The former UFC lightweight champion, who lost his belt to Conor McGregor in the first mixed martial arts main event fight to ever take place inside Madison Square Garden in New York, confirmed on social media early Wednesday that he has “amicably” parted ways with the Singaporean combat sports promotion.

“Confirmed, I am no longer with ONE,” Alvarez wrote in a brief message published to Twitter. :We parted ways amicably and I remain on good terms with the ONE team. I want to thank Chatri for the opportunity and I look forward to watching their continued success. I’m officially a free agent and Ready to Hunt. Tell me [who’s] next.”

Alvarez fought just four times for the promotion after inking deal following his final UFC fight in July 2018, winning just one of those fights with another being overturned to a no-contest after a successful appeal by Alvarez following his fight with Iuri Lapicus in which he received illegal blows to the back of the head.

His sole win for the promotion came against Eduard Folayang in August 2019. He was also defeated by both Timofey Nastyukhin and Ok Rae Yoon.

There is as of yet no indication where Alvarez may fight next, though he has represented both the UFC and Bellator on multiple occasions and either could be seen as an interesting landing spot.
