Difference was, when the UFC was breaking through, there wasn't another UFC as the top dog. No one cares about any other organization outside of the UFC. The casuals sure as shit don't, and the hardcore fan base steals their ppvs and streams. Its UFC or bust, anyone else is throwing away money.
The interest is just not there... if your main event is Tito Vs Rampage... there's something wrong... At their prime, it would make a nice co headline... headline if there were a belt involved... However, they 're both past their prime, and is actually being marketed over the bellator product...
I don't know, but, I'm guessing Bjorn is pushing that PPV to try to cover for the douchiness of the Eddie Alvarez contract dispute...
Main event: BJ Penn vs Frankie Edgar II for the title
Co-Main event: Randy Couture vs James Toney
The hype going into the card was James Toney making his MMA debut, yet the UFC billed the title fight over it as the main event.
I cant think of an event that had non title fight "draws" having the main event feature over a title fight.
The champions in Bellator should have a wtf look across their face!
Yeah, I don't believe so.i dont think dana has ever had a non title fight headline when a title would be contested lower
They haven't as far as I know the only time where it's even been mentioned was for Rousey's title fight and the debate was whether or not Machida/Henderson should have been the main event. Dana said at the time that title fights would always take precedent as main eventsYeah, I don't believe so.
Nothing against Tito/Page, but I'm a big fan of the super fights getting the crowd primed for the title fight which may be more closely challenged and less exciting.
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
