The only possible way Rua vs. Henderson from this past Saturday doesn’t end up getting my pick for Fight of the Year is if Kazushi Sakuraba from 2001 shows up in a Tardis to fight Anderson Silva. Sadly, that’s not going to happen (Anderson’s injury won’t allow him to fight until 2012).
But Rua vs. Henderson has overshadowed another fight that in any other year would be a Fight of the Year candidate: the Bellator Lightweight Championship match pitting defending champ Eddie Alvarez against tournament winner Michael Chandler.
And, because it’s Bellator, it’s online for free. Enjoy. It’s the second most insane thing you’ll see this year.
