Did you miss it, but would love the opportunity to see it, or see it all over again? Spike will broadcast a replay of Bellator NYC tonight.
The two and a half hour broadcast airs on Spike at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
And regardless of what you thought of the matchups and results, there’s little denying Bellator NYC was historic for the promotion, given it was its return to the pay-per-view stage, as well as its first trip to the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Bellator NYC took place June 24 at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City. The main card aired on pay-per-view following a Bellator 180 card on Spike.
On the pay-per-view card, there was no shortness of oddities. After Douglas Lima (29-6 MMA, 11-2 BMMA) cruised past Lorenz Larkin (18-6 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) to retain his welterweight title, Aaron Pico (0-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) was upset by heavy underdog Zach Freeman (9-2 MMA, 1-0 BMMA). And Michael Chandler (16-4 MMA, 13-4 BMMA) lost the lightweight title to Brent Primus (8-0 MMA, 6-0 BMMA) in odd circumstances.
In a double headliner, Matt Mitrione (12-5 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) beat Fedor Emelianenko (36-5 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) by knockout – after the two of them knocked each other down at the same time. And in the main event, Chael Sonnen (29-15-1 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) settled his grudge with Wanderlei Silva (35-13-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA).view original article >>
