Bellator makes Michael Chandler vs. Eddie Alvarez available for online viewing

As if the fight itself wasn’t incredible enough, Bellator FC has gone the extra mile by releasing last night’s title-fight between Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler through the organization’s YouTube page meaning fans can either enjoy the epic encounter a second time or watch one of the year’s best battles unfold if they were unable to catch the live broadcast on Saturday.

Chandler ultimately went on to win the fight (and Bellator’s lightweight belt) after Alvarez recovered from two near-knockouts in the bout’s opening round to have Chandler on his heels until a late surge resulted in an evening-ending sequence after Chandler rocked Alvarez, then took him down and locked in a Rear-Naked Choke.

“Eddie’s the man,” said Chandler of the fight. “I don’t know that we could do a better fight than that. He brought it to me the whole time.”

As entertaining a match-up as you’re likely to see in 2011, Alvarez vs. Chandler can be found below:

    Crazy night of fights, who would’ve thought we’d have two fight of the year candidates on the same night? That was a fantastic fight, too bad for Bellator not enough fans witnessed that battle because it went head to head with one of the UFC’s best cards all year.

    I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anyone get battered as hard as Chandler did in that third round. And a round later he became the lightweight champion. Great fight.
