Video: Behind the scenes of Michael Chandler’s knockout of Benson Henderson at Bellator 243

On his quest to regain the lightweight title he once held, former champion Michael Chandler had to have a win this past Friday.

He delivered in a rematch with authority against a former UFC and WEC champ who has proven hard to put away through the years. Chandler (20-5 MMA, 17-5 BMMA) stopped Benson Henderson (28-8 MMA, 5-3 BMMA) with a first-round knockout in the Bellator 243 main event at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

The win gave Chandler two in a row since he lost the lightweight belt to featherweight champ Patricio Freire in May 2019. Chandler also has a split decision win over Henderson in November 2016 when Henderson challenged for the title.
