Bellator announces Tito Ortiz vs. Quinton Jackson will headline the first PPV in company history. Reaction from fans/media is mixed with some folks wondering why two fighters who are widely seen as way past their primes were pegged for such a premier position and others left excited by the prospect of two of MMA’s biggest stars giving it one more go.
Less than a week ago it looked like Bellator would be debuting on PPV this Saturday night with a stacked show featuring two former UFC champions battling it out in the main event and some home-grown stars wowing on the featured card. However, an injury to Tito Ortiz took him out of a bout with Quinton Jackson, and the event was dramatically altered to the point it will now take place for free on Spike TV.
