The Bellator schedule just keeps getting bigger and better. After a massive failed first attempt at a PPV last year Bellator chief Bjorn Rebney has announced that the promotion will try again with the rubber match between lightweight champ Eddie Alverev (25-3) and Michael Chandler (12-1).
“I’m fortunate to be the guy who is going to be able to put on Chandler vs. Alvarez 3 for the lightweight world title. It will be a pay-per-view event,” said Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney on Monday.
The two first met in the 2011 Fight of the Year winner which saw Chandler walk away with the submission win and the belt. Alvarez got the nod in a close split decision rematch last year during another war between the two.
Bellator 106 was originally set to be the first PPV attempt but after headliner Tito Ortiz got injured and left Rampage without an opponent the PPV aspect of the event was scrapped. No date has been set yet for Alvarez vs Chandler III.
