Bellator has no current plans for a pay-per-view, but it will involve the trilogy between lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler. It was a no brainer for Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney that they headline the first pay-per-view.
“My mind is saying it’s a step for 2014 as we have a fight to warrant it,” said Rebney to Sherdog.
Chandler was the only person to defeat Alvarez under the Bellator banner. His undefeated record came to an end at Bellator 106.
Alvarez was away from competition for a year due to a contract dispute with Bellator. Details of his new deal aren’t known.
Bellator 106 went from the promotion’s fist pay-per-view to a free TV card when Tito Ortiz suffered a neck injury.
