Bellator 180 To Feature Chael Sonnen-Wanderlei Silva, Air On PPV

Bellator MMA will head to Madison Square Garden this June, bringing with it a main event between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva.

Bellator 180 is set for June 24 from New York City. The event is expected to air on pay-per-view.

Sonnen (29-15-1) ended his retirement with a loss in January to Tito Ortiz. It marked the first fight for the former UFC title contender since 2013.

Silva (35-12-1) has not competed since a 2013 win over Brian Stann. That fight came inside the Octagon. He signed with Bellator last year but has been serving out his suspension.

Sonnen and Silva coached against one another back in 2013 on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3. However, before the long-time rivals could square off, both failed drug tests and were suspended.
