The Bellator lightweight title won’t be the only thing Eddie Alvarez takes back with him to Florida. After avenging his 2011 submission loss to Michael Chandler Saturday night at Bellator 106 to reclaim his throne, Alvarez posted a close-up picture of his bloody and battered left eye for the MMA world to enjoy.
After receiving several stitches to close up a gash just below his perfectly trimmed eyebrow, Alvarez wrote, “All better happy Halloween!!” accompanied by the above pic.
It’s like MMA magic every time he and Chandler get in the cage together, and last night was no different. Their initial encounter was an instant classic, so was Part II.
When the dust settled on their 25-minute affair inside Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California, Alvarez took home a semi-controversial split decision (48-47, 47-48, 48-47) win.
Chandler’s face was even more busted up than Alvarez’s, but the former champ wasn’t in the mood to share an image.
