community news, Bellator NYC in Tweets: Pros react to Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva, Matt Mitrione vs. Fedor Emelianenko, more

An utterly bizarre evening at Madison Square Garden did not deter Chael Sonnen.

“The American Gangster” settled an old rivalry and picked up his first win in nearly four years at Bellator NYC, winning a grinding decision over Wanderlei Silva in the main event of Saturday’s pay-per-view card. Check out reaction to Sonnen’s performance below, plus the best of the rest from a chaos riddled night in the Empire State.
