Bellator highlights: Watch the best of Michael Chandler and Pat Curran’s win

Cagewriter

Bellator debuted on Spike on Thursday night. Champions Pat Curran and Michael Chandler held onto their championship belts. For Curran, his title defense came in a boxing-filled, tight match with Patricio "Pitbull" Freire. Chandler's came thanks to dominating wrestling against judo Olympian Rick Hawn. Chandler finished with a perfect rear-naked choke.

For the other televised bouts, Mihail Zayats, Emanuel Newton and Jacob Noe picked up wins. Did you tune in to the fights? Will Bellator become a regular part of your Thursday nights? Speak up in the comments, on Facebook or on Twitter.
