An injury to Bellator’s lightweight champion Brent Primus, has altered the main event of Bellator 197 on April 13. Now, Michael Chandler will face Brandon Girtz on short notice in the new headliner.

On the heels of his impressive win over Goiti Yamauchi at Bellator 192, Michael Chandler jumps back into action in a state where he has experienced a great deal of success throughout his athletic career. Born in High Ridge, Mo., Chandler would go on to wrestle for the University of Missouri Tigers, prior to his “Show Me State” MMA victories over David Rickels and Patricky “Pitbull.” The Bellator season four lightweight tournament winner, Chandler has also been one half of some of the most important and exciting matchups in Bellator history, highlighted by battles with former UFC champions Benson Henderson and Eddie Alvarez.

Never one to turn down an opponent, Girtz impressed the MMA world with first-round knockout of Luka Jelcic at Bellator 190 late last year. A NCAA Division II All-American at Minnesota State University, Girtz was one half of one of the best fights in all of 2017, a 10-minute war with Derek Campos that was stopped only because of a vicious cut opened up on Girtz’s forehead. Lacing up the gloves for Bellator since 2012, Girtz trains alongside Justin Gaethje at Genesis Training Center in Colorado.
