Video Interview: Michael Chandler talks Scott Coker in Bellator & wrestling

New, 2 comments

If the money was the same as MMA, would the former Bellator LW champ go back to wrestling instead of fighting? Plus, his thoughts on Scott Coker running Bellator MMA.

The Fight Nerd had a chance to interview Bellator MMA lightweight contender and former champ, Michael Chandler, at a recent press event held at Dave & Buster's in Times Square, NYC.

In part two of this interview, Chandler talks about the recent change in power when Bjorn Rebney left Bellator MMA and was replaced by former Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker, and what he would like to see Coker change and do differently in this role, if anything.

Chandler also tells us if he has any plans to ever return to amateur wrestling or if he will stay in MMA for good, and we ask him if the money was as good in wrestling as it was in MMA whether he would have stayed in the wrestling scene. Plus, we ask the age-old question - does Michael Chandler have a nickname?
