Michael Chandler may not being appearing on his first pay-per-view since Bellator scratched that idea, but he now headlines the card. At Bellator 106, it’s the rematch between lightweight champ Chandler and Eddie Alvarez.
Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney has said the promotion will work on their pay-per-view debut at a later date. If that happens, Chandler is certain he’s earned a spot on the card.
“If they put one on next year, I think they’d be a little crazy to not put me on it,” said Chandler on MMA Junkie Radio. “So I’m not worried about it, man.”
The only Bellator loss on Alvarez’s record came from Chandler. It also cost Alvarez his lightweight title. The rematch came together after a lengthy and often public contract dispute with Alvarez and Bellator.
They headline Bellator 106, which comes from the Convention and Entertainment Center in Long Beach, CA. It’s on November 2 and the main card starts at 9 p.m. ET on Spike TV.
