The title was retrieved by michael Chandler in Hawaii from Brent Primus at Bellator 212 on Friday.
Chandler failed to simply win the belt back he place all types of records and made history, being a winner for the third time that any other fighter has ever done on the global amount, not only under the Bellator banner.
Primus established his championship mettle, taking the struggle but after five rounds, each of three judges scored the bout at Chandler’s favor once he scored some take downs controlled the majority of the actions, and did further damage.
Jay Ayala scored the biggest success of his career at Bellator 212 if he forced UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir to tap out because of strikes late in the second circular.
A.J. McKee continued his unbeaten streak, ramping his record to 13-0 with a first-round submission of Daniel Crawford. Each of 1-3 of McKee’s successes have come to the Bellator bannerad.
