Bellator Releases First Official Fedor vs. Mitrione Preview

Let’s try this again. On June 24, MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko will make his Bellator MMA debut when he fights UFC veteran Matt Mitrione.

Emelianenko vs. Mitrione will serve as the co-headliner for Bellator: NYC. This will be the first Bellator event to take place at the famous Madison Square Garden in New York City. It will be just the second MMA event to take place at the historic venue.

On Monday, Bellator released a preview video for the highly anticipated fight.

Emelianenko and Mitrione were scheduled to fight back in February. However, after suffering from a kidney stone, Mitrione was forced to withdraw from the fight just hours before it was scheduled to happen.

In the video below, you can watch Bellator’s preview for Emelianenko vs. Mitrione at Bellator: NYC.
