Two-time Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler has irrefutably settled himself as a standout amongst other contenders outside of the UFC. At Bellator 212, he hopes to recover the title that he controversially lost. To promote the fight, a video was released where Chandler could be seen re-enacting a scene from The Purge.
On June 24, 2017, Bellator introduced themselves in the territory of New York for their enormous Madison Square Garden show, Bellator 180.
The card included three title fights. One of which being battled for the 155-pound title that had a place with Michael Chandler.
His rival was the unbeaten 7-0 Brent Primus who hoped to play spoiler on the greatest phase of his profession. And he did.
Right off the bat in the battle, Primus would deliver some low calf kicks, one of which stunned the nerves in Chandler’s lower leg. At the time, it created the impression that Chandler’s lower leg had broken.
Attempting to continue on one leg, Chandler managed to land a big shot but couldn’t finish the job because of his constrained movement. The doctors looked at Chandler’s leg at 2.22 in the first round and stopped the match.
Since this experience, the new champion in Primus did not defend his championship yet. He will defend it Friday night at Bellator 212.
In the video below, Michael Chandler can be seen re-enacting a chilling scene from the Purge to promote the fight.
