Series Of Repeated Blows Cause Alvarez Head Injury
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.”
