In a shocking upset to end a sensational fight, Michael Chandler submitted Eddie Alvarez with a fourth-round rear-naked choke, winning the Bellator Fighting Championships lightweight title.

Chandler was largely unknown when he entered this year's Bellator lightweight tournament, but everyone who follows MMA needs to know his name now. With the victory he improved to 9-0 in his pro career, and he looked amazing doing it. Chandler is for real.

The first 30 seconds of the fight were crazy, with Chandler leveling Alvarez and battering him so hard that referee Troy Waugh looked like he was about to step in and stop it. But Alvarez fought back, hit Chandler with a hard punch of his own that curtailed the barrage, and managed to regroup. For most of the rest of the first Alvarez was actually getting the better end of the striking exchanges, but in the final seconds of the first Chandler again knocked Alvarez down, and only the bell stopped Chandler from pouncing on Alvarez.

 Best sports weekend in awhile !

I was just thinking about Aguilar and how she got screwed, so I'm pullin' for her tonight.

Chandler vs. Alvarez is SCARY good. I'm pullin for Alvarez just because I've been following him for years and he makes great fights every time, and a great personality for the sport, or period.
BUT, if there is a guy who can beat him on the Bellator circuit, it is Michael Chandler.

This fight has all the ingredients for fight of the year and KO of the year nominations.
I'm super pumped for this one, and will be watching it standing.

Hector Lombard vs. Trevor Prangley I think is gonna be a real telltale fight of where both guys are, and are heading.
I enjoy seeing Trevor still fighting and competing at a high level, with fire still in his belly.
And Lombard is one of, if not THE most explosive fighters in the sport, and if he cannot impose his will in the first 2 rounds, I can see the crafty veteran (Prangley) pulling off the upset, possibly by submission.
This would, at least for a short time resurrect a spotlight on Prangley, but I think Lombard has a LOT of fire in his belly as well.
If Lombard loses, he loses the longest unbeaten streak in MMA, dating back nearly five years; last loss of course being to Mousasi.

I'm a little bias, in the Dias-Sandro fight, and am hoping Marlon puts on a display tonight !

BELLATOR, you guys are what mma is all about.
Excitement, tournaments, and true champions, fighting several times in a short period. This WAS what it used to be all about, and since the evolution of the sport, you have found a winning recipe.
Cheers, and good luck tonight and in the future !

im glad the Jessica Aguilar/Lisa Ward fight got on TV gotta give them time to shine plus Jessica got robbed by the judges in her fight with Zoila. Better than the fight that might be a tourney eliminator in Cooper/Hess.
