Interesting. I don't know enough about the US court system to say this would work or not, but it is an interesting way to get a spike in ppv numbers. I would like to think that as the Alvarez situation began to play out before this ppv has taken place it would not play. As well a big spike in one ppv could (and should) be written off through standard deviation. I don't know if Couture is still under a fight contract with UFC but if not I see Bellator trotting him out in a similar manner to move the ppv numbers up which would bolster their contract whether for the Alveraz situation or future contract disputes.
To bad for Alveraz, maybe he needs to get in a gas station fight (Falcao) or come up with some assault charges (Daly) to get cut from bellator.
