After Will Brooks shocked Michael Chandler to capture the Bellator interim lightweight champion in last month's PPV, Eddie Alvarez, whose concussion necessitated the fight, supposedly had the option of either fighting Chandler one more time or unifying the belts, as is the logical thing to do when you create an interim belt. Earlier today, Alvarez sent out this tweet that suggests that Alvarez vs. Chandler 3 seems to be the direction they're headed:
I tried my best Big homie Your boss ain't having it , I feel bad U earned it , but unfortunately Interm is all Ur getting a shot at F'ed up— Edward Alvarez (@Ealvarezfight) June 14, 2014
"Your boss ain't having it" just about implies Bjorn Rebney and "interim" is an obvious reference to Brooks. Alvarez and Brooks have done plenty of verbal sparring and have expressed mutual interest in fighting each other over the past few weeks. Alvarez seems to be indicating that he wanted Brooks but Rebney/Bellator officials overruled him, and based on his tone he doesn't seem to be pleased with what transpired.
Bellator hasn't announced anything other than a confirmed 2nd PPV for season 11. We'll see if Alvarez vs. Chandler 3 is indeed next for the champion, which you'd have to assume would be on their next PPV.
