    I predicted 200k+ with Alvarez vs Chandler, and I think that number would have held up.

    Boom goes the dynamite :)

    People underestimated the impact of having a weekly Spike card lead-in with prelims on Spike... And also underestimate the general name value of Tito and Rampage.

    I see it eclipsing 125k when numbers are done coming in.

    Surprised they're not all too drunk still from celebrating to give a statement if true that is awesome, guess we will know in a few months.

    If true this is good news for Bellator. However when I look at the interview there is something that is concerning.

    Bjorn said he would be disappointed if the PPV buys were less than 100k. He then says he was not disappointed in the SHOW ... and not saying he was not disappointed in the PPV buys. Very odd.
