Bellator 225: Mitrione vs. Kharitonov 2 was a mixed martial arts event that took place on August 24, 2019 at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The event took place on Paramount Network and DAZN.

Background

This marked the second major MMA event to take place in Connecticut proper, after CES 56, rather than on tribal or reservation land, and will be overseen by the Connecticut Boxing Commission.

The event featured a heavyweight rematch between Matt Mitrione and Sergei Kharitonov. The two met earlier in the year at Bellator 215 where the bout ended in a no contest 15 seconds into the bout due to an accidental groin kick.

Vitaly Minakov was originally scheduled to face Javy Ayala on the card. However, the day of the event it was announced that Ayala was pulled from the fight by the Connecticut Boxing Commission due to an undisclosed medical reason; as a result Timothy Johnson moved up from a preliminary bout against Azunna Anyanwu to face Minakov in the co-main event.[42]

Bellator 225 became the first event in the organizational history where every bout ended via stoppage.[43]
