Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney reveals more PPV plans

Bellator caught the attention of the MMA world last week when the organization announced its intent to put on a November 2 PPV headlined by light heavyweight Quinton Jackson fighting fellow former UFC champion Tito Ortiz. However, outside of the main event match-up the details were few and far between.

CEO Bjorn Rebney cleared up a bit of the murkiness this week during a conference call with media where he offered up some additional information on the card.

According to the excited executive, Jackson-Ortiz will be a three-round fight but the lineup is still likely to feature at least one five-frame affair, as lightweight champion Michael Chandler will defend his title at the show against a yet-to-be named opponent. The possibility of another “special fight” was also teased.

Additionally, Spike TV will air the evening’s preliminary bouts during a live lead-in to the main card. The PPV is also expected to be priced between $35-$45.
