Eddie Alvarez vs. Michael Chandler III Headlines First Bellator PPV

Two of Bellator MMA’s former light weight champions Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler are set to face off for the third time to finish out their trilogy, and the event is scheduled to be on pay-per-view! Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said this on Monday during a media conference call.

“I’m fortunate to be the guy who is going to be able to put on Chandler vs. Alvarez 3 for the lightweight world title. It will be a pay-per-view event, These two guys, the first fight that they had was the best fight I had ever seen live. The second fight they had was one of the best fights I’ve ever seen. Sometimes guys just match-up and stylistically they can not help but just give you pure magic when they enter the cage, these two guys are that. That last performance that they had on November 2, it was heartwrenching. It was an unbelievable performance. We’re going to do the third fight. It will be a pay-per-view. The lightweight title will be on the line, and I can’t wait to see it, Price point-wise, we’re going to apply the same philosophy we did last time. We’re going to look to our affiliate partners around the country. We’re going to look to everybody from the Time Warner, the ON DEMANDs, the Direct TVs and the others and let them work with us as partners to determine the appropriate price point for it,” said Rebney. “You’ll see different price points around the country.”

As of right now there has been no date or location set for the event, but Bellator CEO assures fans that, “We haven’t finalized the date yet, but it will be incredible.”
