Bellator is stepping up to Madison Square Garden and back onto pay-per-view.Bellator 180 will be headlined by Chael Sonnen's rivalry bout with Wanderlei Silva, with a fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Matt Mitrione set to be the co-main event. More fights will be announced soon for several of the promotion's top talents, including a handful of its newly signed free agents.Bellator staged its only previous pay-per-view event in May 2014, shortly before CEO Scott Coker took over the promotion.Bellator also intends to debut a portion of its latest crop of free-agent signees in New York, although the bouts haven't been finalized.Even with this leap into the more lucrative world of pay-per-view fights, Coker doesn't intend to stage regular pay-per-view shows every few weeks, instead following the boxing model of using pay-per-view for only the biggest events.Among the UFC's surefire pay-per-view sellers, only St. Pierre has a fight booked, and it doesn't have a date.
