A date has been finalized for Bellator Fighting Championships lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez‘s next title defense, as Season 4 tournament winner Michael Chandler will vie for the champ’s belt Oct. 15 at Bellator 54.

The Chicago-based promotion announced news of the bout Thursday, also revealing that Bellator 54 will go down from the Boardwalk Hall Ballroom in Atlantic City, N.J.

Alvarez has looked razor sharp in his last several outings, rattling off seven consecutive wins since joining Bellator in 2009. After winning the promotion’s inaugural lightweight tournament to become its first 155-pound champ, the Philadelphia Fight Factory export successfully navigated his way through a pair of non-title super-fights before retaining his  title against Pat Curran in his most recent effort at Bellator 39 in April.

“I watched the [Season 4] lightweight tournament very closely and was really impressed with a lot of the competition,” Alvarez said in the official release. “Knowing that Chandler is my opponent, I’ve already gone back and started to watch film, and I’ll be ready. He brings a really good pace, and it’s going to be a great fight.”

Undefeated through eight pro bouts, Chandler has posted five-straight wins inside Bellator’s circular cage. “The Brute” used powerful takedowns and effective ground-and-pound to take home the fourth-season tournament crown, first submitting Marcin Held before outpointing Lloyd Woodard and Patricky “Pitbull” Freire, respectively.

“Eddie is obviously a world class lightweight, but in a lot of the fights I have watched, no one has really pushed the pace against him,” said Chandler in a statement. “I want to put him on his heels and make him respond to what I’m doing in the cage. I’ve got a few months to prepare, and I’ll be more than ready for Oct. 15.”

Ryan Couture – The Next Step

Ryan Couture, son of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, will be returning to the cage come this June when he returns to the upcoming Challengers card.

He will be returning to take on Strikeforce newcomer Matt Ricehouse, an undefeated lightweight prospect who will be looking to put the first blemish on Couture’s budding career which has recently picked up a lot of steam now that he has recorded back-to-back wins under the San Jose banner.

The event, “Strikeforce Challengers 16″, takes place on June 24th at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Washington.

Couture will be looking for his third win in a row in as many appearances with Strikeforce when he takes on Whitehouse this June. In his last outing, Ryan showed the full gauntlet of his skills, when he was able to knockdown Lee Higgins with a crisp right hand after setting him up with low kick combinations all night. Next, Couture was able to capitalize off of a takedown when he eventually sunk in a rear-naked choke with just 19-seconds in the bout.

Now, Ryan will be taking on 4-0 prospect Ricehouse will benefit with the signature win over Couture and will utilize the opportunity to make a name for himself in the mixed martial arts world. Matt was last inside the cage when he met Tom Aaron under the Strikeforce banner last December, where Ricehouse dominated the bout from start to finish en route to a decision win.

A win here will propel Couture into more competitive and name opponents.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Philadelphia this summer on Saturday, Aug. 6 from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia when former UFC light heavyweight champion “Suga” Rashad Evans takes on rising star and former Penn State wrestling standout Phil Davis.

In addition, UFC fans in Philly will be treated to an exciting light heavyweight battle between former middleweight champion Rich Franklin and former PRIDE star Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, as well as a 185-pound clash pitting former UFC world champion, Xtreme Couture MMA fighter,  Vitor Belfort against Japanese superstar Yoshihiro Akiyama.

“The last time we were in Philly, the fans were incredible so we are excited to head back there with a card that features three former world champions,” UFC President Dana White said. “Phil is undefeated at 9-0 and has never been more motivated for a fight, and he wants to prove that he belongs atop the light heavyweight division. Rashad is on fire. He wants his title back so badly he can taste it, but he knows before he can get his title shot he has  to get through Phil. He wants to win and he wants to win impressively. This is a great fight.”

Fresh off a highly impressive victory over Nate Diaz at UFC 129, Rory MacDonald will get right back into action this summer, as the UFC announced on Monday that he’ll meet Xtreme Couture fighter Mike Pyle at UFC 133 in August.

The 21-year-old will fight for just the second time outside of his home country of Canada, having previously fought in the United States in his UFC debut last January. MacDonald brings an 11-1 record into his fourth UFC appearance, with his sole career loss coming against Carlos Condit in a fantastic 2010 fight, where he won the first two rounds before being overwhelmed and stopped with seconds remaining in the third.

Pyle is riding a three fight win streak, and brings a 4-2 mark in his six UFC appearances. Though he was stopped in two of his first three fights in the organization – by Brock Larson on short notice and later by Jake Ellenberger – Pyle has impressed greatly in his last two outings. The 35-year-old halted the hype train of John Hathaway in England last October before sending veteran Ricardo Almeida into retirement with a hard fought decision victory at UFC 128 in March.

UFC 133 takes place from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Penn. on August 6, headlined by the light heavyweight bout between Rashad Evans and Phil Davis.

Xtreme Couture fighter Frank Trigg,  is ready for his fight Saturday against  John Phillips at BAMMA 6 - May 21.

A 13-year veteran of the sport, Trigg has fought all over the world, but this is the first time that he will have the opportunity to fight in front of the rapidly expanding English fanbase.

“Yeah, this is the first time I’ve fought out there, but I’ve been out there plenty of times with my daughter, so I kind of know the area,” according to Trigg.

His opponent in the fight is Welsh middleweight John “The White Mike Tyson” Phillips. Phillips is currently on a five fight win streak including a knockout  victory over James Zikic at BAMMA 4 last September.

“Other than the fights on YouTube, I don’t know much about him. I’ve never met him or anything. I know he has a lot of power” , Trigg said.

With all 13 of his wins coming by way of strikes, the nickname may be appropriate, but Trigg isn’t scared to stand and bang with the knockout artist.

“His nickname is ‘The White Mike Tyson,’ but I’ve been training with guys who havepower, too.”

A member of Randy Couture’s Xtreme Couture gym, Trigg has the benefit of training with some of the very best the sport has to offer.  “Martin Kampmann has been training with me as a lefty, and he hits really hard. Obviously Vitor Belfort…” Trigg explained.

“More than the average number, for sure. We actually have a bunch of guys at Xtreme Couture who are left handed. It’s about one out of every seven people that is truly left-handed, so to have as many guys to train with that are left-handed as we do has been great.”

A fight that has fireworks in the making is one you don’t want to miss.
