I highly doubt they would price the very first one at the UFC's level...

That would be incredibly stupid. Phone Post

King Mo v Rampage would be interesting. I know Rampage is going to Heavyweight but for PPV purposes I would be interested in this fight. Phone Post 3.0

I think Mo vs Rampage can be a Bellator PPV headline on its own.

Im taking a look at the Bellator roster to pick a Main Card.

I watch Bellator regularly. I like a lot of their fighters. But I can't imagine spending more than 20 bucks at most....

And they'd probably need to have both Chandler and Curran on the PPV for ppl to buy. Phone Post 3.0

FW Title: Pat Curran vs Daniel Straus
WW Tourney Final:Ben Saunders vs Douglas Lima
LHW:Vladimir Matyushenko vs Christian M’Pumbu

Of course they can. A dollar per PPV up to 250,000 buys, then 2 bucks etc etc. they can offer exactly the same terms, it just means Bellators profits will be less if they charge less than UFC.

The terms I have mentioned are fictitious, I can't remember the exact terms that were offered but of course they can still match if they lowered the PPV price. Phone Post 3.0

I've been an MMA fan since before UFC 1 and haven't bought a PPV in ten years and can't imagine a card worth buying. Not even Silva vs Jones would get me to part with the money. Just isn't worth it any more.

If King Mo vs Rampage happens, they could talk a lot of MMA fans into buying their fight, not to mention some Theather Wrestling fans over @ TNA.

Bellator going to PPV would be a terrible idea, they have a hard enough time having fans stay loyal to them, why would they make things worse by going to PPV? I don't see them going that route anytime soon, they do not have the talent for it, and the latest ratings on Spike show that they would be out of their element to even attempt PPV at this point, even with Alverez vs Chandler 2.

I don't think they can afford that but their best ppv won't break 50 k buys Phone Post

It's not happening.

It will never happen.

Please stop living these pipe dreams:

But let's just say you wanna do a 5-fight PPV card:

Michael Chandler v. Eddie Alvarez II
Pat Curran v. Daniel Straus
King Mo v. ????
Rampage v. ????
Douglas Lima v. Ben Saunders II

I think they have to give Chandler a PPV fight to honor their rebuttal contract to UFC's.
Could be wrong

Rampage vs. King Mo
Eddie Alvarez vs. Michael Chandler
Douglas Lima vs. Ben Saunders II
Cheick Kongo vs. Ryan Martinez
Shakhbulat Shamkalaev vs. Patricio Freire

Spike TV undercard

Paul Daley vs. War Machine
Rick Hawn vs. Marisu Zaromskis War Machine
Karl Amoussou vs. Bryan Baker II
Rad Martinez vs. Marlon Sandro
Lyman Good vs. Karo Parisyan

Maybe if they do 3 tournaments with finals on PPV + 2 really marketable names in main and co-main events (Lawal, Rampage, Alvarez...) they can get some solid buys for first PPV, but they really need to create more stars who can headline entire event if they want to have long term PPV success.
