Brent Primus feels a rematch with Michael Chandler means more than a title defense.
Back in June 2017, Primus earned a first-round TKO victory over Chandler to capture the Bellator lightweight championship. The TKO was the result of a leg injury. Primus said the injury was caused by his leg kicks, while Chandler claimed he planted his feet at the wrong angle. This sparked a feud between the two and Chandler has gone as far as to say he wants to inflict bodily harm on Primus as if it’s a purge.
Brent Primus Believes Michael Chandler Has Crossed A Line
Primus hasn’t taken too kindly to Chandler’s verbal tirade. He told reporters in Hawaii that things have gotten personal (via MMAJunkie.com):
“All the stuff he’s been talking, all the lying, all the controversy, it is (personal), man. I want to get in there and prove that it wasn’t a mistake – and he knows that it wasn’t, too – so I’m excited. Literally, I was so scared that I heard that he might be going to another organization because his contract was up, and I was literally praying that he stays with Bellator, and I’m just really excited that he’s staying. We can get in there and get it done.”
