    I think it's a no-brainer to put ex-UFC champ Rampage vs ex-UFC champ Ortiz as the main event in your PPV.
    This isn't about the quality of the fight, it's about name recognition and ticket sales.
    I'm not saying Rampage vs Tito is a better fight, but it makes total sense to put it as the main event.
    I had no idea they were fighting though. Don't follow Bellator, but now I'm paying attention because I recognize the names, see how that works?

    Edit the title. It makes no sense.

    It is annoying when you have to consult graphs to work out what a title means

    punctuation does serve a purpose

    ''co-main''

    ''M.E''

    While I agree with you that Chandler/Alvarez is a better fight, Rampage and Tito are way bigger PPV draws so it's not surprising to me.

    Kaufman vs Modafferi, a title fight, was co-main event to Del Rosario vs Mahe in a Strikeforce Challenger card.

    Tito and Rampage still have name value over Chandler and Alvarez .............and by far far far too , not even close .
    I have no issue with Bellator doing this for their first PPV .........in Tito's backyard also no ?

    Silva vs Weidman 2 has bumped Rhonda vs Tates 2 which I'm also fine with .

    Name recognition, you're not gonna sell any PPV's with Chandler/Alvarez as headliner. Hell, you aren't going to sell any with Rampage/Tito either though but at least people know their names.

    I don't believe the TS is really naive enough to not understand why Rampage vs Tito is the main event. Complete no brainer.
