Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez will put his title on the line against season-four tournament winner Michael Chandler at Bellator 54.

Bellator Fighting Championships officials today announced the official date for the booking, which Chandler earned by defeating Patricky Freire, Lloyd Woodard and Marcin Held during Bellator's recent 155-pound bracket.

The two now headline Bellator 54, which takes place at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. The evening's main card airs on MTV2.

You suck.

Anyways, awesome fight. I think Alvarez has the ability to finish this one and I'm just happy to see him back in the cage.

He's not really that overrated. When most fans talk about him, it's how much they like the guy and enjoy watching him fight. I almost never see fans talking about how they think he's the best Lightweight in the world or that he can wreck this champ or that champ. He's just a very likable guy who puts on exciting fights.

Alvarez is a top ranked lightweight for a reason. I look for Alvarez to finish this pretty early. But hey kingsmasher, I respect you going against the grain brother

I don't think eddie is overrated BUT I do think Chandler is a live underdog. The guy is a top prospect regardless of weight class. I think after this fight win or loser he's going to grow considerably from this fight.

Very funny!!

Overrated why? Maybe you should go watch fights from when he was very active 2008/2009. Only 2 losses, and to two great fighters (Thompson in his prime). He has beaten some top 10 fighters. I take it your new to MMA?
Guy was on fire, before he took his break, and I think Chandler has no chance in this one. Guillard comment was very funny btw, keep the jokes coming.
