    So yeah Bellator has apparently done over 100K PPV buys for Rampage vs Mo. What do you think Dana's reaction will be when a reporter asks him about it.

    "Big fucking deal Bellator. You reporters kill me with this type of shit. What were Bellator's numbers again? Yea, Ronda pulls twice that amount whenever she fights. Ronda is a huge star. Not only will Ronda HURT Floyd, but she pulls double sometimes triple the amount that Bellator pulled. Ronda Ronda Ronda Ronda blah blah blah."-Dana's future media scrum.

    100k is actually an excellent number for Bellator.

    He'll ban the reporter who brings it up from future events.

    We are glad to see former employees help grow the sport for other organizations. We are the premiere development of main PPV draws in MMA and it obviously has done wonders. :icon_chee

    Probably that they have had 150 or so more successful ones.

    Not taking anything anyway from them. What they did was good. But good "for Bellator".

    It was 35 in HD on Dish for me. It was as much as 45 on others for HD according to some people on WW.

    He will laugh about it because he knows after he steals Alvarez, Bellator had nothing else worthy of PPV

    It's not a bad thing if Bellator does well, they have the Viacom backing so anything they can contribute that may grow the sport can only be helpful to the UFC as well

    People learning about the sport through Bellator and spike tv will most likely soon be watching the UFC as well...Dana wins

    I think the inevitable Tito vs Page matchup will sell quite well.
