When Bellator debuts on pay-per-view, it’s headlined with two former UFC stars in Tito Ortiz vs. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. The show is set for early November.
“To have two of the biggest names in MMA headline our first pay-per-view is awesome,” said Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney. “Rampage vs. Tito is a fight I’ve wanted to see for years, and to have it as our main event on our first pay-per-view is a spectacular next step in Bellator’s evolution. They’re both re-energized, excited and ready for a war. This will be a great fight.”
They meet November 2 from the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, CA. It’s expected to be labeled Bellator 105.
No price for the pay-per-view was revealed, but more details are expected with a special media call set for Monday, August 5.
Ortiz retired a little more than a year ago at UFC 148 as a hall of famer. Jackson finished his UFC contract in January and didn’t resign. Both are former light heavyweight champions.
