Not long after Quinton Jackson knocked out Christian M’Pumbu on Friday night, he had to be separated from Muhammed Lawal in the cage at Bellator 110.

Good, they need to add something to Alvarez View Chandler 3 and these guys will add some star power to the PPV. I still think they need to throw some more good stuff on there, like 4 more fights of this level.

Much better fight than

Rampage (0-3 in recent fights) vs Tito (1-7 (1))

Now you have Rampage (4-3 in recent fights) vs King Mo (5-2 (1))

Rampage is starting no longer look like a decision machine.

That's what happens when you drop about 12 notches on the competition level.

M'Pumbu? Beltran? LOLZ

I won't buy it but if you bought recent ufc shows there is no reason not to buy this card. Quality of fighters is pretty even

I won't buy it because I want Bellator to be one and done in the PPV market.

Right now the only thing I like about it more than the UFC is that they provide 100% of their content on free to air TV.

If it does well it wont be long before all their tournament finals will be on PPV.

They'll struggle to break 100k buys, I think.

The casual fan will know who Rampage is - not Chandler, Alvarez or Mo.

I think that'd be a stupid move. Rampage vs Lawal can get you big Spike TV numbers which will help generate buys when Rampage goes for the title. Lawal has not looked great at all and is not PPV quality. If anything you run the risk of your PPV blowing chunks if King No can LNP him.

The big problem is Friday nights. Casuals aren't watching.

The other thing is price. If they charge the same as UFC I won't buy it. They just lower their prices to a more reasonable price so more people will buy. $20-30 isn't nothing to watch Rampage and the end of the greatest trilogy.

I think Bellator is seriously considering pushing this to PPV because they've been unlucky trying to set up fights and don't want to risk Rampage lose.
