On Saturday, June 24, Bellator MMA will host Bellator 180: Davis vs. Bader 2 from Madison Square Garden in New York.

In the card’s headlining affair, light heavyweight champion Phil Davis will welcome fellow UFC veteran Ryan Bader to the Bellator cage. The pair met previously at UFC on Fox 14 in 2015, with Bader claiming a split decision victory. Since then, Davis has reeled off four straight wins and captured gold under the Bellator banner, including wins over Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and Liam McGeary. Bader will enter the promotion having earned back-to-back knockouts and wins in seven of his last eight bouts.

The main card also features the MMA debut of women’s boxing world champion Heather Hardy, who takes on Alice Yauger.

The action kicks on at 6 p.m. ET with five preliminary card bouts streaming live above. The four-fight main card airs live on Spike at 8 p.m. ET. It will be followed by Bellator NYC live on pay-per-view.
