They will at least do some counter-programming. I wouldn't be shocked if we saw ufc 162 on for free.
Like I said almost everyone that is actually willing to order a PPV with these fighters is most likely an anti UFC fan/Bellator supporter. The UFC providing a counter program is going to decrease Bellator's income very little and isn't worth it.
All Dana has to do is stand by and watch the Bellator event to see it fail anyways. Tito vs Jackson as a headliner... Pathetic.
What used to keep Bellator somewhat competitive was their ability to find some other decent fighters and sign them up long time. They should have stayed out of the PPV business and far away from washed up bums just hoping to strike it rich. Trying to compete with the UFC is stupid and is the reason so many other MMA organizations have folded.
