The online live stream is restricted to internet connections inside Russia.
Using a service known as a VPN (Virtual Private Network) you can disguise your internet connection and make it appear as if you’re in Russia even though you’re in the UK, USA, Brazil or anywhere else in the world.
So rather than being blocked from watching Bellator 180 on the Russian stream, you’ll be able to watch it.
Just follow the instructions below, you’ll be surprised how simple it is.

All you need to do now is visit the MatchTV! live stream page by clicking here.
You should visit the site at the time Bellator 180 starts and you can watch all the MMA action.
With bouts like UFC Fight Night: CHIESA VS. LEE coming up on June 25th and The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale on July 7th it’s worth keeping hold of the VPN account because you’ll also be able to watch these too and you can’t get a second free trial.
The action starts live on MatchTV! at 2 am UK time on Sunday 25th June which is 9 pm on Saturday 24th June local time in New York, USA.
MatchTV! are streaming the action for 3 hours from 2 am UK time until 5 am (or 9 pm – 12 ET)
The current line up for Bellator 180 is:
Douglas Lima vs. Lorenz Larkin – Title Fight
Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva
Fedor Emelianenko vs. Matt Mitrione
Michael Chandler vs. Brent Primus
Phil Davis vs. Ryan Bader
James Gallagher vs. Chinzo Machida
The light-heavyweight fight between Sonnen and Silva is one of the main draws of Bellator 180 and with Sonnen’s stats at 28-15-1 and Silva who was the former PRIDE champion at 35-12-1 it’s going to make for an explosive fight.
Sonnen is currently on a bad spell winning just 1 of his past 5 fights and you need to go back as far as August 2013 to find that, when he took down Mauricio Rua at UFC Fight Night 26.
Silva a literal veteran of MMA is now 40 years old which is a feat in itself and having not competed since 2013 it’ll be an interesting match against Sonnen.
