Bellator Lightweight Champ Brent Primus to Michael Chandler: ‘Sign the Contract B---h’

By Tristen Critchfield Sep 2, 2018

It appears as though Brent Primus and Michael Chandler are finally on the verge of squaring off again in the Bellator MMA cage.

Primus, the promotion’s lightweight champion, delivered a strong message to Chandler via Twitter over the weekend:

“[Michael Chandler] sign the contact b---h! Sick of waiting” Primus wrote. “You can fight [Eddie Alvarez] or whoever after I’m done with you.”

Primus claimed lightweight gold in surprising fashion at Bellator 180 in June 2017, when Chandler suffered a left ankle injury and was ruled unable to continue 2:22 into the opening stanza. The two fighters were booked for a rematch at Bellator 197 in April, but Primus had to withdraw due to a knee injury.

While Primus has not fought since becoming lightweight champion, Chandler has earned back-to-back triumphs over Goiti Yamauchi and Brandon Girtz. The former University of Missouri wrestling standout inked a new multi-fight contract with the California-based promotion last month.

According to a report from, Bellator is targeting Dec. 14 for the Primus-Chandler rematch. Nothing has been officially announced as of yet, however.
