To call Bellator NYC (and the Bellator 180 undercard) an event of epic proportions would be a vast understatement. A wild collection of MMA stars from multiple generations and eras, Bellator is bringing out its biggest guns for their New York debut.
Blending and combining the spectacle and athletic elements of combat sports promotion, Bellator NYC features everything from grudge matches and obscure legend vs. veteran fights, to multiple relevant title bouts, along with the MMA debut of #wrestling wunderkind, Aaron Pico, who will take his first pro cage fight, on pay per view, at #MadisonSquareGarden (talk about magnitude).
