We’re a week removed from Bellator’s second foray into the world of pay-per-view.

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.

Now you can relive the event, which included a Bellator 180 card on Spike, through Bellator’s “Backstage” behind-the-scenes video.

“Bellator NYC: Backstage” includes footage from boxer Heather Hardy (1-0 MMA, 1-0 BMMA), who made her pro MMA debut with a win, and Conor McGregor teammate James Gallagher (7-0 MMA, 4-0 BMMA), who stayed unbeaten. Plus, in the Bellator 180 headliner, Ryan Bader (23-5 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) beat Phil Davis (17-4 MMA, 4-1 BMMA) to become Bellator’s light heavyweight champion.

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.

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).

Check out the full video above.
