Henderson (28-8 MMA, 5-3 BMMA) has suffered an injury that’s forced him to withdraw from his planned rematch with Chandler (19-5 MMA, 16-5 BMMA) at Bellator 237 this month. As a result, Sidney Outlaw (13-3 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) has agreed to step in to face the former three-time lightweight champion.
MMA Junkie confirmed the change with a Bellator official on Thursday. The exact nature of Henderson’s injury remains unknown.
Chandler will be competing for the first time since he dropped the 155-pound belt to Patricio Freire at Bellator 221 in May. He will attempt to rebound against Outlaw, who won his promotional debut with a unanimous decision over Roger Huerta at Bellator 234 in November.
The latest Bellator 237 lineup includes:
- Fedor Emelianenko vs. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson
