Michael Chandler in depth: Brain injuries, Eddie Alvarez, Bellator's tournaments and Jose Aldo vs. Anthony Pettis

Earlier this week, Bellator's former lightweight champion was in town (Washington, D.C.) as part of the Viacom team headed to Capitol Hill to speak at the Cleveland Clinic brain injury study press conference. Prior to that, however, Chandler was able to come into our office to speak candidly about a number of the most important issues in the sport as well as his career.

In this sit-down interview, Chandler discusses whether he's concerned about the long-term impact of brain injury, the status of his friend and teammate Dominick Cruz, what went wrong in the rematch with Eddie Alvarez, who would win in a bout between Anthony Pettis and Jose Aldo, how he intends to strategically approach their rubber match, his likes and dislikes of the Bellator tournament model and much more.
