On Saturday, June 24, Bellator MMA invade Madison Square Garden, New York for the very first time and bring with them a huge card Scott Coker has called “the best of the year so far”. Featured on the fight card is a long-running grudge match between MMA icons Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen, as well as a fascinating heavyweight clash involving Fedor Emelianenko, perhaps the greatest of all-time, and Matt Mitrione.

In addition to this, Bellator welterweight champion Douglas Lima defends his belt against hard-hitting Lorenz Larkin and Bellator lightweight champion MIchael Chandler defends his belt against Brett Primus.

Check out the video below to see how Silva, Sonnen, Emelianenko and Mitrione have prepared for their historic night at The Garden.
