Tonight (Sat. June 24, 2017) the biggest Bellator MMA event in the history of the promotion, and possibly one of the biggest MMA cards of the year, goes down live on pay-per-view (PPV) from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The event features three title fights; a light heavyweight title fight between champ Phil Davis and Ryan Bader, a welterweight title contest between Douglas Lima and Lorenz Larkin, and Michael Chandler will defend his lightweight throne against Brent Primus. In our co-main event of the evening, mixed martial arts (MMA) heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko makes his Bellator debut when he takes on former UFC fighter Matt Mitrione.
And finally, in our main event of the evening former UFC light heavyweight and middleweight title challenger Chael Sonnen takes on longtime rival Wanderlei Silva, who hasn’t competed in MMA in over four years.
