In one of the best fights the Bellator cage has ever hosted, undefeated lightweight Michael Chandler fulfilled his dream of becoming a world champion at Bellator 58 with a fourth round submission victory over the reigning Bellator Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez on Saturday.

The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino was in a frenzy as Alvarez set out to defend his Bellator title since capturing the belt in Belltaor’s first season. In his first title defense, his superior boxing led to a five round decision win over the last tournament champion, Pat Curran, but this time his opponent wouldn't stop moving forward. Alvarez was able to fend off Chandler's takedown attempts, but Chandler connected with too many power punches and had Alvarez on the fence multiple times.

In the fourth round, one of Chandler’s powerful punches stunned Alvarez and dropped the Lightweight Champion to the mat, where Chandler was able to gain full mount with a knee to belly pass. He poured the pressure on Alvarez and forced him to turn over where he sunk in a rear naked choke and forced a tap almost immediately. Chandler was awarded the win, and more importantly the Bellator Lightweight Championship.

“Chandler vs. Alvarez was quite simply the best mixed martial arts fight I have ever seen,” said Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney. “After having watched over 1,000 fights since the early 1990s, I’ve never seen a better back and forth battle. Chandler’s win over Alvarez is a win over a fighter who I believed was the best lightweight in the world, while at the same time is a testament to what Bellator is all about....."

sadly this happened on the same night as the epicness of Rua vs Hendo. Rebney will have to change his stance after watching this

I knew Chandler was gonna beat the WAY overrated Alvarez...Chandler has a chin as tough as anyone....And when you have a chin like his you have a distinct advantage in trading punches...

Whats interesting is that he looked much smaller IMO to alvarez...

but now Alvarez can come to the UFC....I bet he wont because he doesnt want to start getting beat...
