The fight will co-headline Bellator's pay-per-view event from inside Madison Square Garden, along with a grudge match featuring Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva.
They were due to fight for the climax of The Ultimate Fighter back in 2014 after the pair coached against one another.
Speaking to the Associated Press, Bellator President Scott Coker said: "I think [Bellator 180] will be the most exciting fight card in MMA this year so far". "We're putting it together, and our roster is robust enough that we feel like it's time to get into the pay-per-view business, so here we go". The bout will be Emelianenko's debut in the promotion.

They recently lost 10-2 on aggregate to Bayern in the Champions League, going out in the last 16 for the seventh season running. The centre-back later lifted high to head home the third for the host shortly after Hal Robson-Kanu found the target.
Emelianenko and Mitrione were booked to fight last month at Bellator 172, but kidney stones forced Mitrione to withdraw the morning of the card. Sonnen is 39, while Silva and Emelianenko are both 40. However, light heavyweight champion Phil Davis and freshly-signed Ryan Bader agreed on Twitter to tango in the event. One of the most unsafe heavyweight fighters in the history of the sport, Emelianenko went from December 2000 to June 2010 without a loss. It's also possible he could be added to the card at some point.
It will be the promotions first card in NY since the sport was legalised in the state in 2016.
