Bellator 225 also known as ‘Mitrione vs Kharitonov 2’ is just around the corner and in this guide I’ll be showing you how you can live stream the action anywhere in the world without a cable subscription.
This year they changed their seasonal format for monthly events and Bellator 225 is the main event for August this year.
This time is going to be a rematch between Matt Mitrione and Sergei Kharitonov. They already fought back at the start of the year, so this should be a decent rematch.
If you don’t want to miss this vital fight or you’re following Bellator events, but you don’t have a cable subscription, keep reading this guide, and I’ll show how you can watch it on live in any country.
What do you need to watch
In most countries, Bellator and MMA are shown only on PPV and cable networks. But, in some countries, it is live-streamed for free like in the case of Russia’s Match TV network.
It’s blocked outside of Russia, but there’s a neat trick that will allow you to unblock it and watch in your country.
For this, you’ll need a VPN app which people usually use to protect their online privacy.
Be careful though, there are lots of VPN apps to choose from but not all VPN services work with Russia streaming services.
VyprVPN is the best choice, and it’s the one we’ve been using to watch MMA. It’s easy to use, and they have a 30-day money-back guarantee in case you can’t get it working, or you change your mind.
Surfshark is also another good option proved to work well, so you’re free to choose the one you like best.

Where is Bellator 225 taking place?
The fights are going to take place at the Webster Bank Arena located in Bridgeport, Connecticut in the United States.
The Webster Bank Arena is a multi-purpose arena with 10,000 seats that opened on October 10, 2001, under the name of the Arena at Harbor Yard. From January 6, 2011, and for ten years, Webster Bank made an agreement with the City of Bridgeport for naming rights after they invest $3.5 million.
Bellator 225 is going to be the second event featuring Mitrione vs Kharitonov.
The first time they fought each other was in Bellator 215 in February this year. Back then, the fight became no contest at 15 seconds because Mitrione threw a left leg kick at Kharitonov’s groin.
Since the kick was severe and ended with him screaming in agony on the floor without chances of recovering, the fight was considered no contest.
Mitrione apologized after all this, and since then, they haven’t faced each other again.
Until August 24th, 2019 in which they will have a second chance four years after to get a rematch.
Bellator 225 featuring Mitrione vs Kharitonov is going to take place on August 24th, and if you want to watch it but don’t have a cable service, then you’ll need to use a VPN app.
A VPN service like VyprVPN will allow you to access Russia’s MatchTV to watch the live streaming for free. It’s the official stream for Russia, but you can watch it anywhere.
Why a VPN?
Because, outside of Russia, MatchTV is blocked. Why VyprVPN? Because it is one of the few that works with Russian streaming services.
Setting a VPN up is quick, giving you plenty of time to call your friends around and be the hero of your group for supplying this exciting event.
So, don’t waste any more time and subscribe to VyprVPN, connect to Russia, and be ready to enjoy Bellator 225 on MatchTV for free.
