Alvarez Speaks Out Against Bellator’s Desperate Attempt To Give Chandler A Belt
After Bellator Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez was forced to pull out of a trilogy fight with Michael Chandler this Saturday, Bellator announced that the replacement fight between Michael Chandler and Will Brooks will be for an interim title. However, in an interview with MMAjunkie, Alvarez stated that he wasn’t a fan of the decision, saying:
“Not entirely excited that it’s an interim title, but business is business, and they’ve got to do what they’ve got to do. Whatever. Good luck to both of them guys. I’ll be pulling for Michael Chandler to win…I’ve never seen a champion not be able to fight one fight, and then they put on an interim title. That’s got to be the first time I’ve ever seen that. A fight’s a fight. I don’t get why we have to put a belt in there. I think we should get rid of the belts altogether, to be honest with you. But a fight’s a fight. For money, for a belt, whatever you’ve got to do.”
