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.

Alexander Shlemenko’s team to file formal protest over Gegard Mousasi loss
(https:)
Following a hotly contested unanimous decision loss to Gegard Mousasi at Bellator 185, Alexander Shlemenko and his team have issued a formal protest to the Association of Boxing Commissions and the Mohegan Department of Athletic Regulation seeking to have the result of the bout reviewed and possibly overturned. On Thursday, Shlemenko’s manager Alexei Zhernakov sent a copy of the protest to MMA Fighting in which he points out several issues with the judges’ decision, specifically regarding the second and third rounds of the Oct. 20 main event, which took place in Uncasville, Conn. He argues that round two saw Shlemenko do the majority of the damage while Mousasi could only offer ineffective grappling, and that the final frame could feasibly have been scored a 10-8 in favor of Shlemenko.
