MMA NEWS – Eddie Alvarez Loses Lightweight Title Last Night In Bellator 58 Main Event (Video)

November 20, 2011 10:02 am by Pedro Carrasco

After last night’s UFC 139 main event between Dan Henderson and “Shogun” Rua, in what will more than likely go down as the best fight in UFC history, it was easy to look past the Bellator Main event between Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler.

The team at Bellator called it the best fight in MMA history and as I woke up this morning hung-over from last night’s UFC event I turned on the DVR and took a peak at what all the hype was about.

It was a good fight, Eddie Alvarez lost his title in the fourth round by rear naked choke and outside of that, there was nothing real notable for me to comment on.
