Anyone else think the UFC moves their Fight for the Troops to go up against this PPV?

I would be shocked if the Ufc didn't at least put on a free re-broadcast.

Why would they. The only people that are actually going to order this PPV are the people that dislike the UFC anyways...

Bellator should stick to free events and stay away from washed up bums that are only in it for the money... Jackson and Ortiz being reborn and loving MMA again because they are away from the UFC... BS...

Why would they? To draw interest away from their competitor and instead make money for themselves!

They will at least do some counter-programming. I wouldn't be shocked if we saw ufc 162 on for free.

After all the blood, sweat and tears Tito has sacrificed over the years for UFC fans and this is how you talk about him?

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.

It's not to try to pry away MMA hipsters, but the casual fans Bellator is going for by using Tito and Rampage. So the UFC might want to give them an alternative by using a free card as direct competition. I'm sure the UFC wants to keep Bellator from getting every dollar they can after all of Spike's counter-programming.

They have a Fight for the troops scheduled a few days later, It doesn't even have a venue yet so it's probably easy to move to Saturday. The only problem would be if FS1 has a college football game for that Saturday evening.

Just an idea, but why not do an MMA tag team match with Rampage and Ken Shamrock against Tito and Kimbo? That would be entertaining.

What smacky said. Bellator is directly going after casual fans with Tito and Rampage. Putting on a free card wih the Ufc name on it could overshadow the event.
