UFC president Dana White had a simple message for Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney after Bellator 106 Saturday night.
“I’m hearing Djork oops Bjork got served a big fat plate of Karma tonight:),” White posted on Twitter. “Congrats Eddie!!”
The main event of the Spike TV special featured Eddie Alvarez defeating Michael Chandler to become the Bellator lightweight champion again. Alvarez and the promotion were involved in a lengthy legal battle after the UFC offered him a contract.
Bellator found a way to match the deal and planned on putting on a pay-per-view with Alvarez-Chandler in the co-main event slot. However, a neck injury to Tito Ortiz scrapped the PPV and forced it to Spike TV.
