Bellator 180 live from Madison Garden


Bellator moves to pay-per-view broadcasting this weekend with the action-packed Bellator NYC card, live from Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 24.

The main event features a bout with plenty of ‘bad blood’ as Chael Sonnen meets Wanderlei Silva inside the Bellator MMA cage. Silva, who despises Sonnen, reported this week that he ‘wants to feel Sonnen’s blood on the ground.’

The co-main event is special solely because it hosts the return of ‘The Last Emporer’ Fedor Emelianenko to our television screens as he makes his Bellator MMA debut against Matt Mitrione. The bookmakers believe that this is almost a perfectly even matchup between these star heavyweights.

If you’re not excited by two bouts between ageing mixed martial artists, don’t worry, the next three fights will surely catch your attention. Michael Chandler will defend the Bellator Lightweight title against the undefeated Brent Primus. Douglas Lima welcomes Lorenz Larkin to Bellator MMA from the UFC in a Bellator Welterweight Championship bout. Many hardcore MMA fans are also excited for the debut of Aaron Pico, a highly-touted 20-year-old potentially the greatest MMA prospect of all-time. Pico will kick-off the pay-per-view Bellator NYC card against 8-2 Zach Freeman.

The undercard for Bellator NYC is a Bellator 180 event, filled with some of Bellator’s best talent from start to finish. Bellator 180 airs on Spike TV and is headlined by a Bellator Light Heavyweight Championship bout between Phil Davis and Ryan Bader.
