Bellator 225 Fight Card
Kharitonov, who is at his best when he's standing up due to his years of experience as a kickboxer, comes into this match as a bit of an underdog, but his punching power and speed could be enough to topple Mitrione.
Mitrione, who played briefly for the New York Giants as a defensive lineman, suffered his first loss in Bellator since his move from UFC when Ryan Bader took him down at Bellator 207. Following his no contest at Bellator 215, he's looking to get back in the win column.
These two heavyweights are among the more lethal offensive fighters in the division, and that should make for enthralling television.
