The Saga of Bellator 106

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. Here’s a look at the timeline attached the tumultuous situation surrounding Bellator 106. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)

    Saga is a strong word that I think is to good for this, but good article, I liked the layout. The last one should of mentioned something about how the major wrong was corrected in the fact that they had two over the hill fighters over a main title fight, which shouldn’t be.

    Also ‘leading more than a few people questioning how strong ticket sales and buy-rate projections were.’ If we are to believe dana (don’t worry that’s a joke) it was 12

    I still want to know what Eddie’s options are now…….I thought he was promised a PPV as part of his new deal? What gives? Does he have a out after this fight? I assume he really does want to beat chandler which is why he’s still fighting but does he have too at this point?
    I mean wouldn’t it be nuts if he pulls out from the event citing a contractual clause and now is free to sign with UFC?…Bellator would sink the next day much like Elite did from the Kimbo fiasco. I know it’s hypothetical but I do want to know what Eddie’s options are now…..

    Even if he does have a PPV clause in the contract, it doesn’t guarantee that that PPV had to be the one he was on, all they have to do is say that at some point they will do a PPV and they are fine
