Michael Chandler finished off his Bellator contract with a second, more earnest win over Benson Henderson in the main event of Bellator 243.
Chandler put Henderson down with a straight left that set up a first-round knockout at the 2:09 sign of the initial edge.
The two warriors looked to get things before in a rematch four years really taking shape. With three rounds to work rather than five, Chandler, who as champion beat Henderson in a nearby part choice at Bellator 165, tried to get inside with his clench hands. Henderson, in the meantime, worked the body at separation with kicks and punches. A few hard shots associated with Chandler’s waist, welcoming a likely issue in profound waters.
