Michael Chandler – Brent Primus 2 Announced For Dec. 14 in Honolulu

Former Bellator MMA lightweight champion Michael
Chandler
will finally get a shot at redemption against the man
who took his belt after a brutal knee injury ended his fight
against Brent
Primus
back in June 2017.

The two are set to rematch on Dec. 14 in front of an audience of
armed forces in Honolulu, the promotion announced on Thursday.

Primus (8-0) won the belt in an obviously controversial fashion and
hasn’t defended his title or fought since the Chandler fight.
Meanwhile, “Iron” Mike (18-4) has rattled off two wins since then
— a decision victory over Goiti
Yamauchi
and a submission win over Brandon
Girtz
.

Chandler held the lightweight strap from 2011 to 2013 and again
from 2016 to 2017. A win over Primus would make Chandler the first
fighter in promotional history to win a belt three times. The
longtime Bellator staple has been calling for a rematch with Primus
since losing the title, but injuries prevented the incumbent
champion from returning to competition.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight
champion Frank Mir
(18-12) will look to rebound from his disastrous Bellator debut
against Fedor
Emelianenko
as he takes on Javy Ayala
(10-7) in the main event.
