Bellator champ Brent Primus says Michael Chandler turned down rematch
(https:)
Bellator lightweight champion Brent Primus is also surprised that he’s not fighting Michael Chandler next. Primus took the 155-pound belt away from Chandler in June, but most fans expected Bellator to book a rematch after an anticlimactic finish at Madison Square Garden, when the former champion suffered an injury in the opening round. Chandler will return to action on Jan. 20 against Goiti Yamauchi, and Primus didn’t see that coming — especially since he claims that the promotion called him with a date and location for the rematch: Bellator 193 in Temecula, Calif., on Jan. 26.
