Bellator is sitting on the most intriguing competitive rivalry in the sport of MMA right now in the form of Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler. The men have had two bouts that have been considered among the best fights of the year in 2011 and 2013.
The men have traded the title in splitting their current two-fight series. Chandler choked out Alvarez in their first meeting, taking the belt off the seemingly invincible champ. Then, in their most recent scrap, Alvarez took a split decision to recapture the gold to set up this rubber match. The date has not yet been determined, but Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said the bout will be the company's first pay-per-view.
This third fight, if it's anything like the first two bouts, has the chance to be an amazing scrap. Here is a head-to-toe breakdown of this third matchup that will decide the Bellator lightweight champion.
