Bellator lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez was expected to make his PPV debut for Bellator this weekend.

Instead of hyping the fight, he’s in the media explaining a recent training injury that forced him out of the planned main event.

Via ‘The MMA Hour‘:

“It was during one of [coach] Kenny Monday’s wrestling practices. Me and Abel Trujillo were wrestling. I shot in, he defended like with a hip check, sort of hit me, and I just remember feeling like it was a significant blow. Well, we just kept wrestling and kept going, and there was a couple of exchanges later, I had a separate partner. I had a single-leg, and they pulled out of the single-leg and their heel hit me underneath my chin, and that was only about two or three minutes later after I shot on Abel. So, it was a series of significant hits that I took.”
