Tito Ortiz and Quinton Jackson may no longer be slated for action at the show but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of other fighters with Octagon experience to choose from. Included in the bunch are Mike Guymon, Hector Ramirez, Terry Etim, and Joe Riggs. It’s obviously not a Murderers’ Row but there’s a least a little nostalgia involved and Etim in particular could end up impressing beyond tomorrow night’s show based on potential.
2013 has been an up-and-down year for Bellator, featuring highs like the company’s presence on Spike TV and lows including the fallout from Eddie Alvarez’s attempt to sign with the UFC. Initially set for PPV until headliner Tito Ortiz went down with injury, tomorrow night’s lineup for Bellator 106 is a perfect example of both sides of the coin. In addition to some pairings with favorable odds to entertain, the card has plenty of subplots worth paying attention to when things unfold Saturday in Long Beach. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
