Both comfortably within the lightweight limit of 155lbs, Chandler weighed 153.8, while Primus weighed 154.2.

Missouri’s Chandler, 16-3, is a two-time Bellator world champion and the current Bellator lightweight champion. The 31-year-old won the title in June 2016 with a stunning one-punch knockout of Patricky Freire and then went on to successfully defend it five months later against former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson. Primus, meanwhile, is an unbeaten 32-year-old with seven straight wins to his name.
