Review: 2011-11-19, very aggressive start, great actions both standing and on the ground, high pace and a nice submission: the fight between Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler was definitely one of the best mma fights of 2011. Eddie Alvarez (22-2-0) entered as the No.4 lightweight in the world while Michael Chandler (8-0-0) entered as the No.52. Alvarez vs Chandler, main event of the Bellator 58, is valid for the Bellator Lightweight Championship (they also fought a second time on November 2, 2013: Chandler vs Alvarez 2). Watch the video!
