It never felt quite right, seeing Michael Chandler vs. Eddie Alvarez II take a backseat to a pair of faded, beaten down names. So in a way, it's strange to see how fittingly how Bellator 106 played out. Ortiz-Rampage fell apart amid a cascade of giggles, because of course it did, and ultimately we got the ending that should've been there all along.

Chandler and Alvarez stepped in on Saturday night and wasted no time delivering another white-knuckle ‘Fight of the Year' candidate on the biggest stage in Bellator history. After a nightmare year, spent more in the courts than the cage, Alvarez got his revenge (in more ways than one). Now with the scored tied at one apiece, a massive trilogy fight is a mouthwateringly foregone conclusion. To say the fight world loved it, well, that'd be an understatement.
