While injury forced a short delay in Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez's planned title defense with season-four tournament winner Michael Chandler (8-0 MMA, 5-0 BFC), fans won't have to wait long for the contest.

Originally scheduled to take place at this weekend's Bellator 54 event, company brass recently announced the matchup has been moved back just five weeks and will take place at November's Bellator 58 card.

Already featuring middleweight champion Hector Lombard in a 195-pound non-title fight with Trevor Prangley, Bellator 58 takes place Nov. 19 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla.

Alvarez (22-2 MMA, 6-0 BFC), who's generally regarded as the top-ranked lightweight outside of the UFC/Strikeforce, claimed the belt with a June 2009 win over Toby Imada and has since notched one successful defense of the lightweight title with a win over Pat Curran. He's also proven victorious in non-title affairs over Roger Huerta and Josh Neer. He owns a seven-fight win streak and 12 wins in his past 13 fights.

Chandler, meanwhile, is undefeated in eight professional contests. A former All-American wrestler at the University of Missouri, Chandler now trains at Xtreme Couture. The 25-year-old turned pro in August 2009 and competed on a pair of Strikeforce preliminary card bouts early in his career. He won Bellator's season-four lightweight tournament with a May upset of Patricky "Pitbull" Freire in the bracket's final contest.

Chandler is a top prospect, Alvarez may have some trouble on his hands.

Good call.

Will download this later, with 139 and Fedor/Monson I forgot this was even on. And the LW division gets even more exciting.

EDIT - Full fight here

Fight of the decade! That's all that needs to be said. If Hendo/Rua gets fight of the year over this, it would be a crime.

Edit: I take that comment back. I just replayed both fights back to back and enjoyed them both equally. One of the best nights for MMA ever.
