Michael Chandler defended his lightweight world title for the second consecutive time, with a 44-second destruction of David Rickels, getting the knockout victory in the opening round. He kept his perfect record intact, extending his win streak to twelve straight victories to begin his career.
Eddie Alvarez tried to make his way over to the UFC, but nearly a year and several court hearings later, his next fight will take place in the Bellator cage. Alvarez lost his title to Chandler in November of 2011, but has since earned back-to-back knockout victories over Shinya Aoki and Patricky Freire.
