Option 4... I'll watch a free online live stream! :-)
Experience, that's really option 1 in disguise.
Stay tuned to lowkick for news if it was a good fight or not, if its good, then watch it on the internet, after my daily dose of ****. Don't judge me...imma homeless dude with a stolen laptop.
I'll watch it if it's at Free TV. I care about the fight but I would not pay to watch it.
Ortiz needs money and jackson too
Bellator if they come in at a much cheaper price could make it work. The whole point of having 2 names; They're just two guys who would draw in casual viewers. Your average fan don't follow ufc 24/7, but they will still however recognize tito and rampage. to the casual fan this is a epic fight long over due. Regardless of these two being over the hill. They both are. The end result is a competitive match opposed to a blood bath if either of these two fight any top 5 lhw now.
Everybody is comparing Bellator to UFC. Look, Bellator doesnt need to beat UFC to be successful. Bellator is successful now. If everybody would stop comparing them and making this out to be some kind of battle. They did the right business move which is to grow the business. Bellator can sell 200k buy's and be a grand slam for them. They have a much lower overhead.
In a market where UFC is quickly becoming a monopoly, Bellator just needs to exist. If they can stay profitable. Then they are doing fine. They shouldnt try to over throw UFC. They can't. Everybody knows that. I'm sure their bosses know that. But if they can carve their own profitable niche, then they should. Also, keep in mind Spike is now the network of the number 2's. TNA can't touch WWE in PPV numbers. But they still do PPV's. Why? Cuz it's profitable. When you're a small company. Small numbers can still be big pay offs.
