Well, it looks as though Bellator’s second attempt to hold it’s first PPV event could have gone up in smoke again. Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez has suffered a concussion in training, and will not be able to defend his title in the Bellator 120 PPV main event against arch rival Michael Chandler.
Bellator’s first attempt at hosting a PPV event was also sidelined with an injury to one of its headliners. Tito Ortiz was slated to headline that PPV event against Rampage Jackson, but suffered a fractured neck and had to pull out of the event. The PPV was scrapped and put on Spike TV, however, there is no word on whether or not Bellator will do the same with this PPV event.
The co-main event is set to feature Rampage Jackson taking on King Mo Lawal in a light heavyweight affair. Also, Tito Ortiz is set to make his Bellator debut against middeweight champion Alexander Shlemenko.
The event is slated to take place in the Landers Center which is in Southhaven, Mississippi. Stay tuned to ProMMAnow.com for more news on this Bellator 120 event.
UPDATE: There will be a Bellator conference call today at 6 p.m. ET and we will know more, as to whether or not Chandler will still be fighting against a replacement for Alvarez, and whether or not the event will still be on Pay-Per-View. Either way, it’s likely Rampage vs. King Mo will be moved to the main event.
