Video Interview: Michael Chandler wants Brooks rematch, not Alvarez


Former Bellator MMA lightweight champ has not moved on from feud with Alvarez, but a rematch with Brooks is more important to him.

"Losing the close split-decision to Alvarez doesn't sting as bad as losing to Will Brooks." - Michael Chandler

The Fight Nerd had a chance to interview Bellator MMA lightweight contender, Michael Chandler, at a recent press event in NYC, where we talked about fighting, fighting, and more fighting!

Chandler updates us on his back injury and when fans will see him back in the cage again, and tells us that he wants to fight Will Brooks again under better circumstances for another shot at the belt. The former champ also talks about if Brooks surprised him at all in their title fight, and if he watched the fight again yet.

The big news from this interview is that Chandler is not as interested in fighting Eddie Alvarez as much right now, and wants the rematch with Brooks more! Chandler says he still wants Eddie, but since no one knows what is up with his contract - including Chandler.
