Phil Davis and Ryan Bader, who were longtime UFC light-heavyweight contenders, want a rematch – under the Bellator banner, and on pay-per-view.

On Monday officials announced Bellator 180 is slated for June 24 at Madison Square Garden in New York. The event, which already features light heavyweights Chael Sonnen (29-14-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) vs. Wanderlei Silva (35-12-1 MMA, 5-7 UFC) and heavyweights Fedor Emelianenko (36-4 MMA 0-0 BMMA) vs. Matt Mitrione (11-5 MMA, 2-0 BMMA), airs on PPV following prelims on MMAjunkie.

It’ll be the second PPV in Bellator history, and Davis and Bader want to be a part of it.

I have BEEN hoping and waiting for a rematch between these two, as I honestly believe Davis did enough to win that first fight..so hopefully, this rematch will happen, and most likely will happen..

There is no question the fight should happen if it happens on the ppv i certainly hope they rearrange the billing.


What I've been told is there weren't plans for any title fights on the ppv.....but as it always is things change as people talk.

I certainly hope they put together a strong card and prelims.

If this becomes the main event then they have to advertise the show like that, and it will bomb.

Not that I think Chael vs Wanderlei will light the world on fire in 2017.

If this were the headline fight, with a Fedor/Meathead co-main and the Sonnen/Wand fight as part of the undercard that would be a great PPV card.

This is the direction Bellator should be heading in. I have my doubts they'll change the bout order though. Whether it's Coker or Viacom making the decisions for them, they seem to be more interested in marketing the past their prime guys rather than their top fighters.
