We are just one week away from one of the very best MMA cards of 2017, as Bellator 180 is set to unravel on June 24 from inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, and feature some of the very best fighters on the Bellator roster. The supercard will be headlined by a light heavyweight matchup pitting former UFC title contender Chael Sonnen against rival and all-around MMA great Wanderlei Silva, while Matt Mitrione welcomes heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko to the Bellator ranks in the co-main event. In addition, lightweight champion Michael Chandler and welterweight kingpin Douglas Lima will both defend their titles on the main card, while light heavyweight champion Phil Davis puts his 205-pound strap on the line for the first time in a rematch with former UFC contender and promotional newcomer Ryan Bader.
In preparation for the impending blockbuster of an event, Bellator has put together an incredibly entertaining “Countdown” video, which can be seen above. Check out the behind-the-scenes action as Sonnen, Silva, Emelianenko, and Mitrione put the finishing touches on their respective training camps and give insight into their matchups later this month.
