Alvarez-Chandler III on PPV
January 11, 2014
MMA Fighting reports that Eddie Alvarez vs. Mike Chandler III will happen on PPV. In an interview with Ariel Helwani, Alvarez broke the news that he will be in the main event of Bellator’s first PPV sometime this year.
In the interview, Alvarez tells Helwani that he does not know what will happen if he wins. Thus, Alvarez’s contract status is still a big unknown after settling with Bellator late last year.
Alvarez also had some choice words for Ben Askren after his comments on Alvarez’s legal contract battle with the company.
Does an Alvarez-Chandler III PPV excite you? Their fight at Bellator 106 on Spike TV received the highest viewership for the organization. The two have had two great battles but the PPV success will depend on what other fights will support the main event (e.g. Rampage). The other factor is price. Bellator had tossed around $35-$45 for its initial PPV. We will see how Bellator will market the PPV and whether it will create enough buzz for people to purchase it.
