Chandler Plans To Do Harm To Outlaw For His Family
Chandler spoke to MMAMania.com ahead of this weekend’s event. The former Bellator lightweight champion explained why he’s itching to harm Outlaw despite not having anything against him.
“I want to go out there and I want to inflict bodily harm and finish him in the first round, not because I dislike him, not because I am not a fan of his work, not because I hate his guts, but because I have a family to take care of. I made a promise to my wife and my son, the day that I married my wife and the day that we adopted my son, I made a promise to both of them that I would love and take care of them until the day that I die. Every single one of these fights is another opportunity to do that.”
Chandler is hoping to rebound from his first-round TKO loss to Patricio Freire. Chandler lost the Bellator lightweight gold in the process. He was riding a three-fight winning streak.
