Bellator MMA's second attempt at a first pay-per-view card took a significant hit over the weekend when its main event fell apart. Lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez had to pull out of his defense against Michael Chandler because of a head injury suffered in training.

"Injuries are part of MMA, but so are great opportunities," Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said in a statement.

Chandler now fights Will Brooks for the interim title in a co-main event for Bellator 120 on Saturday at the Landers Center in Memphis, Tenn.

Here is the fight card for Bellator's pay-per-view debut, which ranges from $30-45 depending on your market and provider.

Main card on pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET
