Chandler is the reigning Bellator lightweight champion. Bellator have now added a newsworthy co-main event to their shock announcement that Rampage Jackson would face Tito Ortiz in the headline of Bellator 106 and PPV debut. Alvarez became a player in the war between the UFC and Bellator MMA when he looked to sign with the UFC. Amid claim and counter-claim Alvarez and Bellator seemed set to fight a bitter legal feud, with the main point being Bellators inability to match the UFC offer to get PPV money included in his contract.
