If you’re still a Bellator nay-sayer, refusing to give the UFC competitor a chance, then you’re missing out on some awesome and devastating knockout finishes, like champ Michael Chandler’s finish of David Rickel at last nights Bellator 97. Shortly after news of Jackson vs. Ortiz being set for the first ever Bellator pay-per-view, we witnessed an even more improved hand speed from the lightweight Bellator champ.

The undefeated champ now stands at 12-0, earning his second straight title defense, since taking the belt from former dominating champ Eddie Alvarez. Following the win, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney had no issue saying “You’re looking at the best lightweight in the world in MMA.” Sorry Bendo, Bellator brass think you’re a paper champ.
