Michael Chandler is Bellator’s lightweight champ for the third time, as the well-rounded fighter reclaimed the belt from Brent Primus last night at Bellator 212.
As you can see by watching the highlights below, both men landed some big shots during the bout, but it was Chandler’s wrestling that ruled the say. Chandler lost the belt to Primus last year when he incurred a nasty ankle injury shortly into their fight, and was unable to continue.
