    Would you buy this? (has been edited since the first 10 posts)

    Rampage vs Newton
    Eddie vs Brooks
    Warren vs Dantes
    Curran vs Pitbull
    Tito vs King Mo

    (Undercard with M Page vs War Machine and Kongo vs Ivanov, or something ;) )

    (4 title fights is better than watching 20 Bellator promos about the PPV you are already watching :p)

    Did Rampage ever say that he would fight Newton though? i know Newton said he's game, but Rampage originally said he'd rather not fight Newton.

    He was put here as a tool to win the Bellator title.

    No probably not. I vowed not to buy anymore UFC ppvs with Page as a headliner after the Evans sh*tfest.. Then he lost a couple times after that. Page v Newton is not ppv worthy, the UFC guys are better, period. I really like Dantes, but that isn't enough. Ol' Mo forgot that he punches really hard and can strike, because of wtevr the Mayweathers did to his brain, so he isn't worth watching. Tito is the 30th best LHW on the planet, at very best. And Alvarez v Brooks is really good, but I'm just not feeling it with the rest of the card.

    Strikeforce was better than Bellator. Especially since Btor has moved to Spike. Put on some tourny's stacked with prospects, make a couple new Michael Chandlers every year at different weights (maybe a 16-man tournament?), and in a couple years you MIGHT be ready for more ppvs Bellator. I bought the last one to support the sport, it was borderline charity. I'm kind of broke, so one is my limit there.

    With Page not wanting to fight Newton I can see

    Mo/Page rematch
    Brooks/Eddie LW title
    Newton/Tito LHW title
    Warren/Dantas BW unification match
    Kongo/Ivanov

    Something like that.

    Put Caldwell and Page on prelims in fights to build them up and make them look good, then maybe add another solid fight and a good prelim main event and that would be your card.

    Alvarez v Brooks would be the main event there 100%, Dantes v Warren would be the co-main. Tito is not getting a title shot, unless Bellator is retarded.

    Eddie v Brooks
    Warren v Dantes
    Page v Tito
    Curran v Pitbull/Frodo
    Newton v 205 tourney winner (to set up winner v Page/Tito)

    I would probably buy that ppv.

    Hopefully Tito can get a win in one of the main events of the spike tv cards....just to make him more credible.

    Would you buy the first card if Curran vs Pitbull were thrown on it?

    Despite all the talk, I do not see Rampage passing on the title shot vs Newton. There was a reason he wasn't talking about Tito after the King Mo fight, and its because he just doesn't want to fight a wrestler again.

    Eddie vs Brooks
    Warren vs Dantes
    Page vs Newton
    Curran vs Pitbull
    Tito vs King Mo

    Don't get ahead of yourself. Let's see what their first ppv did before remotely talking about a second ppv.

    I think they're basically committing themselves to a 2nd PPV at this point.

    I'd go:
    Newton vs Rampage
    Chandler vs Brooks
    Tito vs Mo
    Shlemenko title defence
    WW qualifying tournament match featuring Michael Page

    Prelims should feature Kongo again, as well as one or both of the Pitbull brothers and Caveman Rickells.
    Also, Michael Chandler, probably in the featured bout right before the PPV starts when the audience peaks.

    I don't think I'd buy the PPV, but I would vigorously call my local sports bars to request they order it.

    Eddie has to fight on PPV. So they either have to do one or let Eddie go.
