Eddie Alvarez Injured, Out of Bellator 120 Title Fight
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 05.10.2014

MMAFighting.com reports that Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez suffered a concussion while in training for his trilogy bout with Michael Chandler for Bellator 120 set for May 17. As a result, he will not be able to fight on the PPV card, per sources close to the situation.

Sherdog first reported the news of Alvarez's concussion injury before MMAFighting later confirmed the report. The title bout was set to headline Bellator's first PPV card.

The unfortunate event is remarkably similar to the last time Bellator MMA attempted to put on a PPV card. Bellator 106 last November was originally scheduled to be held on PPV and would've been headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Tito Ortiz and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Ortiz suffered an injury in training and had to withdraw from the fight about a week out from the event. As a result, Bellator cancelled the PPV, and the card was shown on Spike TV instead.

Bellator MMA has not announced the change yet. Bellator 120 is still currently set for May 17 at the Landers Center in Southaven, Mississippi.
