Bellator has another “Champ Champ” after the main event of Bellator 221 from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. Bellator featherweight champion Patricio Freire’s journey up to 155 pounds was a success, as he made quick work of lightweight champion Michael Chandler.
After an interesting first few moments, Freire landed a nice overhand that planted Chandler down. Some subsequent ground-and-pound forced the referee to step in and call it off. Chandler protested the stoppage after, claiming he wasn’t out.
