A watch-worthy hype video for the upcoming rubber match between top lightweights Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler on Bellator's upcoming pay-per-view.

MMA highlight videos are a dime a dozen on Youtube, but most have that "I just read the Windows Movie Maker tutorial" vibe and only a select few videographers have the potential to dazzle. Machinemen is among the latter.

The focus for the latest Machinemen offering is the centerpiece of Bellator's first foray into the pay-per-view business on May 17: the anticipated trilogy that aligns scrappy wrestle-boxers Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler, who've been playing hot potato with the lightweight belt. If their first two encounters are any indication of what's to come, see-saw momentum swings, impressive knockdowns, even more impressive recoveries, and all the unpredictable vagaries of a down and dirty bloodbath are fair expectations for the rubber match.

Enjoy, and check out the rest of the video gems on the Machinemen TV Youtube page.
