Michael Chandler and Brandon Girtz put on a show for the fans this past Friday night at Bellator 197, with Chandler scoring his promotional-record 15th win live on Paramount Network.
The former Bellator lightweight champion secured himself a submission win not long after tossing Girtz to the canvas and injuring his shoulder.
On Twitter after the bout, Girtz showed off his wounds while in a hospital with a dislocated shoulder.
“Felt great in there,” he wrote, “unfortunately I dislocated my shoulder and wasn’t able to scramble back up. Instead took a nap. Thanks to my team and Bellator. Big takedown (Chandler).”
Chandler took note of the post, replying back to Girtz “This man is a warrior.”
