For those people who haven’t learned the entire Roman numeral system from watching a variety of NFL Superbowl games growing up, XXV is the equivalent of twenty-five. I know some of you were unaware of that, it’s alright. I’ll keep your identity confidential and will most likely blackmail you at a later point in life. On August 19th, Bellator XXV kicked off at the historic Chicago Theatre in downtown Chicago. It’s historic because it has a giant vintage neon-lit sign above its entrance. That’s the general indication that something is greater than you, whimsical lighting. Despite being six-pounds overweight at weigh-ins, Shonie Carter managed to come to the Chicago Theatre armed with a harem of women, some of which held actual fire in their hands like some new age Prometheus. Check out our full fight gallery of Bellator XXV with bonus post-fight press conference videos to inject a little inspiration into your lives. All photo and videos were captured by Jason Nawara.
