Friday night talkback thread: Michael Chandler’s Bellator bout and final opening round on TUF

Maggie Hendricks

Before we talk about the fights, let's take a second to listen to some Beastie Boys. Adam "MCA" Yauch died today after a battle with cancer, but left a legacy of great music. Enjoy one of my favorites above.

And yes, we have plenty of fights to talk about. Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chander is fighting for the first time since his memorable win over Eddie Alvarez. He will take on Akihiro Gono in a non-title bout. Bryan Baker will fight Ben Saunders in a welterweight tournament semifinal.

On "The Ultimate Fighter," the opening round will finish out with Team Faber's Andy Ogle taking on Team Cruz's Mike Rio.
