Michael Chandler and Eddie Alvarez put on another classic bout at last night’s Bellator 106 in Long Beach. Alvarez returned from a year-long layoff to upset the surging Chandler with a bloody split decision win.
While Chandler was able to take down his opponent repeatedly, Alvarez responded by peppering Chandler’s face with a multitude of significant strikes. His jab was finding a consistent home, and he eventually closed Chandler’s eye shut.
It was a triumphant return to the cage for Alvarez, who regains his belt after a long legal spat with Bellator. Check out the full fight video highlights of the promotion’s biggest event ever, courtesy of MMA Junkie:
