On Saturday, Nov. 2, Bellator hosted its 106th event from the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, Calif.

In the night’s main event, Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler rematched the man whom he defeated to capture the belt, Eddie Alvarez. Chandler entered the cage with a perfect, 12-0 record, including three straight stoppage wins since defeating Alvarez in late 2011. Alvarez bounced back from the loss with two straight, first-round knockout wins of his own to set up the rematch. The fight was originally slated to take co-main event status on the promotion’s first pay-per-view event, but a fractured neck suffered by headliner Tito Ortiz forced the card to switch to Spike TV.

Also on the main card, tournament winners Emanuel Newton and Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal faced off for a second time with the promotion’s interim light heavyweight belt up for grabs. A third championship bout graced the event, as featherweight title holder Pat Curran put his belt on the line against tournament winner Daniel Straus, in yet another rematch.

In addition to the three title bouts, the promotion crowned a winner of its reality series, Fight Master, as Mike Bronzoulis battled Joe Riggs.

The action kicked off at 7 p.m. ET with six fights live on Spike.com. The five-fight main card aired live on Spike TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
