Whenever it happens...
Bjorn Rebney spoke last night (via MMAjunkie) following Bellator 106 about a third fight between Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler and more. Check out the highlights:
On whether he can see a reason not to have Alvarez vs. Chandler on PPV: "Not unless I have my brains removed. I mean, please. How could you not?"
On the bout: "I think part of the magic that they were able to create tonight was based on the fact that Ed had a long period off and was able to heal and recreate what he does. Michael got a lot of time off, and Michael had a couple of title defenses, but they were short-order title defenses (in which) he took no damage. But [the rematch is] the kind of fight that you're going to need to take some time off. Once they're both back at 120 percent, there's nothing in the way of doing No. 3."
On whether they've discussed when they're going to head to PPV now: "There wasn't like, 'Well, we're not going to do Tito/Rampage, and we'll do it on March 7.' There was no thought process behind it. It was just, we can do this on Spike. We can give an incredible big audience for people to see it. So, I don't know."
