Bellator 180 pay-per-view price set at $49.95 for high-definition 832 SHARES By: Steven Marrocco | March 27, 2017 7:45 pm Bigger stars, bigger venue, bigger price tag. The Bellator 180 pay-per-view offering, “Bellator NYC,” will set you back $49.95 for the high-definition version of the company’s second pay-per-view event on June 24 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Bellator President Scott Coker confirmed the news today to MMAjunkie after an announcement on “The MMA Hour.” A price for the standard definition version of the event is not yet available, Coker added. The Viacom-owned promotion’s first PPV event, Bellator 120, was priced between $30 and $45. According to former CEO Bjorn Rebney, that was due to cable operators picking their own price. As previously reported, Bellator 120 drew 100,000 buys.

Heavyweight or catchweight? Confusion reigns over ‘Rampage’ Jackson vs. ‘King Mo’ rematch
(mmafighting.com)
When Bellator first announced the rematch between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal for March 31 at Bellator 175, the bout was unveiled as a heavyweight attraction. But that message was seemingly unclear for one of the competitors. On a conference call Wednesday to promote Bellator 175, Jackson and Lawal kicked things off by arguing about their usual topic of conversation. Lawal accused Jackson of “looking kinda old” and “kinda fat” ahead of the rematch, while Jackson brushed off the criticism and warned that he would be walking into the cage at a far heavier weight than his foe. But then something curious happened.

Bellator MMA officially signs Lorenz Larkin
(bloodyelbow.com)
Bellator MMA has beefed up its welterweight division even more, as ex-UFC contender Lorenz Larkin has signed with the promotion. Seven months removed from his last fight with the UFC, welterweight contender Lorenz Larkin is now part of the Bellator MMA family. Larkin became a free agent following his TKO win over Neil Magny at UFC 202, having turned down a “lowball” offer from the UFC prior to the fight. It should be noted, of course, that Larkin vs. Magny was the “feature Fight Pass prelim,” so a battle between two top-10 fighters was essentially fought in a mostly empty T-Mobile Arena.
