Tito out of Rampage fight

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2013/10/2...r-pay-per-view



Quote:

It looks like the worst-case scenario has happened for Bellator ahead of their planned November 2 pay-per-view debut, the main event "superfight" between Tito Ortiz and Quinton Jackson appears to be off. Tito suffered a neck injury that has forced him out of the bout, according to MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani.

More on the situation from MMA Fighting:

Bellator is currently seeking a replacement for Ortiz, and it is unclear at this time whether Jackson will remain on the Nov. 2 card. There is a chance next weekend's pay-per-view card turns into a Spike show with Jackson being moved to another event.

Tito had tweeted out a picture that said "I know everything happens for a reason, but sometimes I wish I knew what that reason was," along with his own words of "Sometimes I wonder why?" earlier in the day.

If they do somehow change from a PPV to a Spike card this late it becomes a really exciting Spike TV card.

But this did seem somewhat predictable, didn't it?
Ha ha.

hm... reports come out of Bellator's PPV not doing great numbers next day Tito is "injured"

The good news is with Emanuel Newton, Attila Veigh, King Mo Lawal, and Rampage Jackson they should be able to get another big fight

Um.. I think that the dude that has put himself hurt or not sometimes through almost 30 big pro and main event fights with a documented case of neck and back problems having a real injury is more likely then a August fan blog on bleacher report offering nothing but opinionated speculation, not real numbers or data, being the reason Tito is not fighting.

I like MMA less because of this forum

More shady BS fro, Bellator now? They see this thing is about to bomb which would hurt all future Alvarez like contract disputes. They can not let that happen the entire point was to make sure it did good enough buys to maintain some leverage in those situations. I also love how they do not feel that there 3 championship fights have enough value to do a PPV

It its true Tito just sunk Bellators battleship.

This will be the beginning of the end Viacom will only spend so much.

They've changed it to a Spike card, and apparently the ppv idea is "on hold".

I thought it was looking like one of their best cards ever not counting the main event to be honest.
