The long overdue fight between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva will go down at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
Bellator Officials told AP on Monday that the bout is a lock.
The promotion will levy the highly-anticipated bout as a move into the pay-per-view business.
The former UFC stars will be the headlining bout on Bellator 180’s fight card. The event is set to take place on June 24.
Mike Bohn originally broke the story in the MMA media circle:
