Good match up, looking forward to. Marshall vs storm also looks fun.
Just like I mentioned in another thread. If Rampage didn't choose to leave the UFC he could very well be the replacement to fight Gus in main event and no one would be bitching about the UFC being a joke. Beltran could have easily got the nod a couple weeks ago and still with the UFC as well. I bet if Bellator put Tim Kennedy vs Rafael Natal as a main event

Nobody is begrudging bellator for putting rampage in a main event the problem is giving a title fight second billing especially when rampage is fighting such a low tier fighter

The UFC has done that before.

Thats a timing issue main cards have locked in time windows, which creates problem you need to estimate how many fights will fill the time between the start of the event and the start of the main card without to much dead time to fill. Fights can go one minute or 15 so its tough to do. Sometimes they go long and fights either go on after or don't go on.

Some of you are twisting words to suit your own, weak arguments. No one is complaining that Rampage is fighting Beltran. Their gripe is that said fight is main eventing while a championship rematch of a FOTY candidate has been pushed down the card. That's a fairly legitimately gripe.

Attempting to knock the UFC by saying, "But we have Tim Kennedy vs. Rafael Natal main eventing" is laughable. There also isn't a title fight on that card. And if there were, it would be main eventing - as title fights always do in the UFC. So give your heads a shake. Slamming people who knock Bellator for the hell of it and then knocking the UFC as a response is hypocritical and makes you look ridiculous.

Frankly, I don't mind the fight. And I'm interested in seeing if Rampage has the spark back. But that doesn't mean that it should be the main event. Chandler vs. Alvarez should be. And if the UFC pulled this type of move, people would say the exact same thing. Don't delude yourselves into thinking otherwise.

Edit - I see that Rampage vs. Beltran and Alvarez vs. Chandler are on two different cards. Disregard that point. Though my other points remain applicable.

I dont see why people care what fight is main eventing and what fight is co eventing. What difference does it make really??

Bellator is a struggling mma organization trying to get more viewers and become more popular. Not a SINGLE casual fan knows Vitaly Minakov or Alexander Volkov which is why they were not the main event. Rampage Jackson on the other hand is a very popular mma fighter even to casual fans and was also in A-team. For ratings it makes alot of sense for them to make Rampage the Main Event. At this stage Bellator cant be making decisions which will get them less viewers in order to satisfy hardcore fans picky-ness.

How many organizations have gone under that us hardcore fans knew off and liked the event but not a single casual fan tunes in. We are not what keeps an organization floating. Especially since we will tune in to watch the event no matter what order the fights are happening in. I know i would.

Fair enough affliction did the opposite with Fedor and that didn't turn out well
Thing is Bellator is still the ones in the glass house talking about how there tournament format gives them legitimacy.
