Bellator's November 2 pay-per-view could be a major bust if a recent report that they've sold less than 2,000 tickets is accurate.

The tickets were expensive for this event.

Same price you would pay for a UFC event.

And bellator ain't no UFC

Personally I'm boycotting the ppv, & I hate to do it since I love all things mma. I even think Chandler is the best lightweight in mma today, & would love to see him fight Eddie again. That being said because they put rampage & tito as the headliners I can't support this card. Not even because they aren't main event material, but because some of the comments they said for this card have just been so dumb & ignorant I'd hate to support them. To clarify lets say bellator does sell 300, 000 ppv buys Tito & Rampage are so full of themselves they would beat their chest & brag about their drawing ability. The truth is ANY mma fan will tell you that if they order this ppv its DESPITE tito & rampage. They ordered it for the real attractions (Chandler, Curran & Eddie), if they headlined with Chandler I'd feel morally better spending my money. I just can't support Tito & Rampages diva/baby tendencies, sucks its going to cost me watching Chandler Alvarez 2 tho.

I feel like this a bit as well. I could care less watching Rampage and Tito fight. Alverez/Chandler and Curran/Straus are the big fights I want to see. I even like the rematch between Lawal/Newton more than Tito and Rampage.

yea but unfortunally all that would show up is a ppv buy and credit would go to the headliners. I just can't belevie Tito compared fighting in the UFC to being a slave. Tito always made a nice chunk of change despite losing consistantly, he has some nerve.

Let's not forget they are also completely selling out their tournament format and further sacrificing their long term credibility by having Lawal and Newton fight for a title neither hold while their champ is healthy.

Not the way I read it. Here is Bjorn explaining away an article where Vegh said he wasn't hurt. Maybe he is and I am too skeptical of a shady Rebney these days....

This post is loads of SHIT.

Get off your high horse.

Do you like MMA or no?

Do you tune in to watch fights or see what a promotion will do next?
