Bloody Elbow Presents


Welcome to the 6th Round Retro Post-Fight Show. This is the show that digs into the archives and gives you a comprehensive review of classic MMA events, that span as far back as UFC 1. Join Eddie Mercado & Victor Rodriguez as they relive the Bellator 58: ‘Chandler vs. Alvarez’ event this week, complete with results, analysis, and of course a few laughs. As mentioned, this week we feature the Nov 19th, 2011, Bellator 58: ‘Iron' MIchael Chandler vs. Eddie ‘The Underground King’ Alvarez’ event. This event we’re covering today was a jam-packed nine-bout card, which was a mixed bag with a couple subs, a couple KO's, and a few decisions, along with one DQ. The show went down on from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL. The main event that night showcased a battle for the Bellator MMA Lightweight Championship with MMA icon Eddie Alvarez facing then up-and-comer Michael Chandler. Battling it out for the title that night, no one expected them to go the entire five rounds, but what they really weren't expecting was a 4th Round Sub from the young undefeated 'Iron Mike'. Chandler was able to secure the ‘W’ via a wicked Rear Naked Choke to the talented Alvarez. Chandler entered the bout with a 9-0 record at this point in his fledgling career, including his recent victory over Patricky Pitbull. ‘The Underground King’ was entering the octagon after a six and a half month break, on a seven-fight win streak, with a record at that point of 22-2. In the co-main event, we watched Hector ‘Showeather’ Lombard quickly put an end to Trevor Prangley, via Punches at 1:06 of the second round. To refresh your memory, at this point #Lombard had a 31-1 fight record, while this was Prangley's Bellator debut, despite a professional fight record of 24-8 at the time... he never fought in Bellator again after this loss. The rest of the card was pretty decent, with a women's bout between Jessica Aguilar and Lisa Ellis, which was preceded by a sub, a KO, a few decisions and that DQ -- which was due to an illegal kick between Herbert Goodman and Jonas Billstein. The venue consisted of Sean Wheelock & Jimmy Smith at the announcers table, Michael C. Williams as the Ring Announcer, with around 269,000 average viewers on Spike TV. Let’s check it out!
