Wanderlei SilvaA star-studded card will mark Bellator’s first event at New York City’s legendary Madison Square Garden, and you can be there live for Bellator 180: Sonnen vs. Silva by purchasing tickets today.

The main event will pit MMA legends Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen against one another in a feud that has been brewing for several years. What started as a simple van ride to a promotional appearance led to a very awkward conversation as Silva lectured Sonnen for speaking poorly about Brazilians in the midst of his rivalry with Anderson Silva. The two haven’t stopped arguing ever since.

In June, the two will settle the score as Silva makes his long awaited return to action. With 35 wins to his name and a legendary career that includes a lengthy title reign in the famous Pride Fighting Championships middleweight division, Wanderlei will certainly pose a very dangerous challenge to Sonnen.

The co-main event will feature the long-awaited fight between heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko and Matt Mitrione. While Mitrione was unable to fight Fedor as planned earlier this year due to illness, he will be ready to go next month as he attempts to keep Fedor from adding yet another chapter to his legend.

The night will feature some title fights, as well. Douglas Lima will defend his Bellator Welterweight Championship against Lorenz Larkin, who comes off of a very accomplished run in the UFC. Meanwhile, Michael Chandler will be in action against the undefeated Brent Primus.

The night will also feature a championship matchup between Phil Davis and Ryan Bader as the two former UFC standouts look to settle their score after Bader won a 2015 split decision in the Octagon. Davis hasn’t lost in his four Bellator bouts so far, can he keep it going and avenge the loss?

The stacked card will also feature the professional debut of wrestling standout Aaron Pico and fights featuring Chinzo Machida and Ryan Couture, among other competitors. Get your tickets today so you can be there live when Bellator takes over Madison Square Garden on June 24!
