Bellator 180: Sonnen vs. Silva

Madison Square Garden, “The World’s Most Famous Arena” and Mecca of combat sports, will host Bellator’s first-ever mixed martial arts event in the state of New York on Saturday, June 24th with Bellator NYC: Sonnen vs. Silva. The blockbuster pay-per-view features a long-awaited grudge match between rivals Chael Sonnen (29-14-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) and Wanderlei Silva (35-12-1 MMA, 5-7 UFC), who will finally meet in a light heavyweight fight that has been brewing since 2011.

The double main event also features Fedor Emelianenko (36-4, 1 NC), an MMA legend who many consider to be the greatest heavyweight fighter of all time, taking on Matt Mitrione (11-5) in a bout that will undoubtedly produce fireworks between the heavy-handed strikers.

Additionally, the Viacom-owned promotion is adding two world championship bouts. First, Douglas Lima (28-6) defends his belt against top free agent Lorenz Larkin (18-5, 1 NC), and then current lightweight champ Michael Chandler (16-3) will put his world title on the line against the undefeated Brent Primus (7-0).
