Bellator MMA’s Monster Energy Series is back for 2018 and the first event of the year is now on the docket. This time instead of the roar of race car engines, the rumble of road hogs will be heard at the FIM World Championship on March 3, 2018, at the Monster Energy Supercross.
Prior to the start of the off-road motorcycle championship at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga., Bellator will host a “Pit Party” at the nearby Georgia World Congress Center starting at 2 p.m. ET. Any valid ticket to the Supercross will be admitted to the show, which will include meet-and-greet opportunities with “Big Country” Roy Nelson and Dan Henderson.
The @MonsterEnergy @BellatorMMA Fight Series returns for its second season next Sat. March 3rd, in Atlanta at Rd 9 of @SupercrossLIVE!— Bellator MMA (@BellatorMMA) February 22, 2018

Meanwhile, the fights will start at 4 p.m. ET and continue throughout the afternoon, with a four-fight card scheduled for those in attendance. The fighters are described as “regional up-and-coming talent” and this will be your only chance to watch their bouts as none will air on broadcast television.
