Best Bellator photos from July-August 2017: The infamous 'Air Jordan' logo gash

Bellator continued to make noise in the MMA world in 2017, putting on a number of high-profile and notable events that captured the attention of fight fans more than ever before. Although it wasn't its busiest year in terms of volume of events, Bellator put on arguably more big fights over the past 12 fights than any year prior. Now it's time to relive some of those moments in picture form. The flourishing organization had somewhat of a mid-year lull, putting on just two events between July and August of this past year. Bellator 181 took place in Thackerville, Okla., while Bellator 182 went down in in Verona, N.Y. Naturally, the promotion had a photographer posted cageside for every bout at every event. To see the best snapshots from Bellator's July and August fight cards, check out the photo gallery above. For more of Bellator's best images from 2017:
