Bellator 106 Main Event Fighter Eddie Alvarez Pushes Weight Back Up Around 170

Fear not, as Eddie Alvarez successfully weighed in under the 155-pound limit for his Bellator lightweight title fight with Michael Chandler this evening.

However, if Alvarez were forced to step on the “official” scale again, things would not be good for Bellator 106.

The former champion posted a picture of himself on a scale late Friday, with it reading 168 pounds.

“Time to climb back up baby!!” he wrote on Twitter. “IV’s done time to pick a good spot to eat.”

Alvarez will be looking to re-claim the belt he wore for several years this evening against Chandler, the man who took it from him in 2011.
