Joey Beltran vs Rampage Jackson for Bellator 108
 
Bellator announced today that Rampage Jackson (32-11 MMA) will face Joey Beltran (14-9 MMA) in the main event of the Bellator 108 show, which takes place Nov. 15 at Ovation Hall at Revel Atlantic City. Jackson had the following to say about the fight…

"I want to thank Joey Beltran for stepping up for the fight so I can get my first Bellator victory out of the way. He'll have the unfortunate honor of taking the ass whooping I was going to give Tito. My body is in incredible shape right now. I feel like I did in PRIDE, and Joey Beltran is the right guy to put on an exciting fight and showcase what I've been working on."

In other words; "Joey Beltran is too stupid to take me down and grind out a win"

And Bellator further proves to be a joke by bumping a title fight from the main event spot for a Joey Beltran fight

Bashing Bellator seems to be the trend these days. Who gives a shit where the fight is on the card Chandler vs Alvarez is one of the best fights booked this year in any organization. The UFC has valued name over quality numerous times in the past. Is the UFC a joke for using Kimbo for ratings then teasing a comeback all season long to get more ratings? How about for booking James Toney? Giving Chael Sonnen a LHW title shot coming off a loss at MW and no LHW wins in the UFC? Does that make the UFC a joke? Beltran lost a SD a couple weeks ago and could easily be a UFC employee right now.

Bellator is great. I like it when the people get in the cage and fight each other.
Happy Rampage and Beltran get a chance to fight for my entertainment.

MMA is so much more exciting when you enjoy the fighting more then the Company putting on the fights.

RFA,WSF, and Bellator had the most entertaining fights last weekend. I enjoyed all of them including the UFC card.

I think you miss my point. I have no problem with them using name value to promote there brand, I think signing Tito/Rampage was a great move for Bellator, I understand using Rampage to headline a card due to his name recognition but they put on how many cards a year so why use them on a card with a title fight and then make a title fight play second fiddle. They are telling you that some UFC cast off like Joey Beltran is more important than there title. I have a problem with Bellator belittling Bellator while telling us we are supposed to accept them as the UFC's equal. I had the same problem with Tito/Rampage headlining the PPV over Chandler/Alvarez but at least they both had a history of drawing huge PPV numbers to justify it. Beltran was a 3-6-1NC fighter in the UFC against mid to low level competition. Alexander Shlemenko should an could be one of Bellator's biggest home grown stars but he is hardly being treated like it.

Really Rampage/Beltran gets you excited? I am not even sure I will watch that at this point Rampage mails it in and Beltran while fun to watch does not do much to entice me to watch. If you enjoy the fights and not the name value then explain to me why you would want to see it because the only possible reason is Rampages past glories.

Some just like to watch fights, regardless of the promotion or who is fighting. Not everyone out there has seen every fight of Rampage's going back to his Pride days and recognize him more from his acting endeavours. In any case, I'm less concerned with who Rampage is fighting and more concerned with the trouble that Bellator is having financially and keeping cards PPV worthy.

This is the first card signaling the beginning of the demise of bellator IMO.

You can't have fights like rampage vs Beltran headlining a PPV and expect to stay in business long.
