Bellator 106 all access


If you like behind the scenes footage in MMA, then today is your lucky day! Earlier today, we posted Dana White’s video blog for UFC Fight for the Troops 3. In that video you will see the behind the scenes of UFC 166.

Ready for your second serving of behind the scenes? Bellator MMA brings us an all access look at Bellator 106: Chandler vs Alvarez 2. The event was supposed to be the promotion’s first ever PPV, but an injury to headliner, Tito Ortiz, scrapped the PPV entirely. Instead, fans were treated to an epic battle on free tv, solidifying the fact the Chandler/Alvarez should have been the main event in the first place.

The night was full of upsets and title changes. Eddie Alvarez regained his title in the incredible main event against Michael Chandler. King Mo was defeated once again by Emanuel Newton; this time for the Bellator interim Light Heavyweight title. Daniel Straus became the new Bellator Featherweight champion with a dominant victory over Pat Curran, and Joe Riggs became the Fight Master winner. Overall, it was a solid night of fights, capped off by an incredible main event.

Some of the highlights in the video include the fighter’s warming up, their post fight reactions, and a ton of Chandler/Alvarez footage. Fantastic job done by Bellator to make these videos.
