Henderson, a former WEC and ufc titleholder, recently improved his winning streak to four bouts with a decision over Myles Jury in the main event of Bellator 227 in Dublin. Chandler, the only man to beat Yamauchi at lightweight, lost his Bellator title to Patricio Freire in May. Primus, another Bellator ex-champ, bounced back from a loss to Chandler by submitting Tim Wilde with a gogoplata in just 80 seconds at Bellator Birmingham.
Can a win over Awad earn such opportunity for the Brazilian lightweight?
Coming off a win over Daniel Weichel
