Over the past few months many have argued as to whether or not Bellator 106 was pay per view worthy. Of course none of that matter once Tito Ortiz dropped out of the fight due to a neck injury and the fight card was moved to Spike TV. Looking back on it now, even though Ortiz vs Rampage didn't happen, Bellator 106 was still a huge success. Featherweight Mike Richman opened up the main card with a TKO win over Akop Stepanyan at 4:05 of round 1. Joe Riggs defeated Mike Bronzoulis by unanimous decision to become the Fight Masters Welterweight tournament champion. Daniel Straus got revenge and a Featherweight title by defeating former champion Pat Curran via unanimous decision. Emanuel Newton defeated Muhammed Lawal for a second time in his career, this time by unanimous decision to become the interim Light Heavyweight champion. In the main event Eddie Alvarez avenged his loss to Michael Chandler. Their first fight was amazing and this one was yet another fight of the year performance. Alvarez won via split decision to claim the Lightweight title.
