Brent Primus out, Brandon Girtz in against Michael Chandler at Bellator 197

Brent Primus injury forces him out of Michael Chandler rematch

Michael Chandler won’t get his title shot rematch against Brent Primus as soon as he expected. An undisclosed injury has forced Brent Primus to be removed from the Bellator 197 main event. Chandler will still be in action, however, as Brandon Girtz stepped in and will be fighting in Primus’ stead.

You don’t need to ask Brandon Girtz twice. Someone is hurt and he has a chance to jump into a high profile fight? Just say when and where and he’s on the way. You have to respect someone who will step in against an absolute killer like Chandler on short notice.  Brandon typed up a bit of cryptic tweet, that later was confirmed as him stepping in to face Chandler.

The event takes place April 13th, live from St Charles, Missouri. It will air on Paramount TV.
