An injury forced Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez out of his Oct. 15 bout against Michael Chandler, but it appears it was only a one-month delay.

Bellator officials on Wednesday announced that Alvarez vs. Chandler has now been added to the upcoming Bellator 58 fight card set for Nov. 19 in Hollywood, Fla.

The bout between Alvarez and Chandler will headline the card along with middleweight champion Hector Lombard taking on former UFC and Strikeforce veteran Trevor Prangley.

Alvarez has been out of action since April when he defeated Pat Curran by unanimous decision to retain his Bellator lightweight title. The win marked Alvarez’s seventh in a row overall.

Meanwhile, Chandler looks to keep his record unblemished when he takes a major step up in competition to challenge Alvarez for the Bellator lightweight title.

  • Who the fuck is l Chandler?

    For the love of god people, don’t try to put Alvarez on any top ten rankings as long as he is fighting nobodies in a 3rd rate org.

    Nothing personal, I like watching Bellator, kind of, but it is so bush league and there is no way that beating guys on that level should get you ranked.

  • Mario

    Eddie Alvarez is a tough motherfucker…

    But the guy reeealy needs to stop waxing his eyebrows.

    Dude looks like a fag 😛

      you sound jealous, haha.

    • pickafight

      that’s such a manly smiley face u have there, haha

  • What a waste of talent. Either he has no interest in fighting the best or he has a terrible manager. Is he managed by M-1 or something… He needs to quit spinning his wheels in the minor leagues and move on to the big show.

    I agree 100% with the first poster about Alvarez’ place in the rankings. He doesn’t deserve to be ranked anywhere neat the top ten as long as he’s fighting “B” and “C” level talent on the small circuit.
