You can't have fights like rampage vs Beltran headlining a PPV and expect to stay in business long.
It's not a PPV, it's a free card. A free card that also features one of the best matchups of the year in Eddie vs Chandler. Bellator has been taking too much crap lately on these boards IMO. Beginning of the end? That's a big stretch.

Oh, my mistake, I thought it was a PPV.

Even so, their title fights should be headlining cards, not washed up over the hill ex UFC fighters.

Bellator have been taking the kind of shit they deserve. Imagine the back lash if the UFC put on something like this with a title fight further down the card. There'd be hell on.

Big stretch? Viacom is a public company that has accountability to investors, they just invested a ton of money promoting a ppv that isn't happening meaning they are not getting a return on investment

The UFC has done it's fair share of similar things just like I mentioned earlier. You guys are overreacting big time. How LOL was it when Chael Sonnen was given a UFC LHW title shot coming off a MW loss with 0 wins at LHW in the UFC? He didn't even have the former Champion label to help the argument like someone like Vitor did. Kimbo Slice was on 2 UFC main cards and used for ratings for an entire TUF season. James Toney was given 500K to co-headline a UFC card. The UFC has done the gimmick shit plenty of times. Bellator still puts on quality shows with quality fighters and they are still new to the game and figuring shit out. IMO you guys are being way, way too hard on them.

EDIT:Washed up UFC fighters? Rampage was fighting for the UFC title not long ago and Beltran lost a SD in the UFC just WEEKS ago. Come on now, let's not pretend these guys are some scrubs. Rampage could still be with the UFC if he wanted to be.

I would remind you guys that this fight isn't happening Saturday, it's happening the 15th

Shelmenko/Marshall may still be headlining but if it isn't no biggie.

All true... and look at the amount of shit they got on here for it. Just cos Bellator are a smaller org, doesnt mean they are immune from a backlash when they make, questionable matchups.

Rampage and Beltran are past their best, well, Beltran may not be but he's never exactly been a high flier. He's what many might describe as a 'can'. He'll go in there, take the beating Bellator obviously hope he'll take and Rampage will look like a superstar.

Even if Tito had not dropped out through injury, He is so far past his prime it's embarrassing.

Meh, this fight is just going to be a slopfest slugging match till Rampage catches Beltran. Maybe now that this is no longer a PPV, Bellator will move this fight down the card like it should have been to begin with. Promote the the title fight & not some "freak show" replacement fight.

I was thinking about watching this card now, but I can only see two fights that I find remotely interesting. That's not really enough to keep in front of a TV on a Friday night.

They moved it to 108 which has the MW title fight but Page/Beltran is still getting top billing.

I don't see the issue with it being a headliner, the UFC does shit like this all the time, Rampage has the biggest name and what they think to be the biggest draw on the card so it will headline. No one gives a shit about Beltran, he is going to do what Bellator wants, and thats stand and bang with their big draw.

I do agreethey should try and grow some of their homegrown guys, like
Shelmenko, but no one ever said theey were the smartest

Some people just have a need to bitch about nothing these days it seems. Also lol at the number of posts ignorant about what's happening with this fight, are people that big of haters? Why bother posting?

Good match up, looking forward to. Marshall vs storm also looks fun.
