    Default Bellator PPV will be $35-$45

    http://mmapayout.com/2013/08/bellato...will-be-35-45/

    MMA Fighting reports on the Bellator press conference held Monday at its headquarters in Newport Beach, California. Among the topics included the price point of the PPV being somewhere between $35 and $45.
    Rebney indicated that it would be up to the individual distributors of the PPV to decide on the final price point. In addition, he indicated that championship bouts would occur on the card along with Rampage-Tito in the main event. Shoulder programming would promote the event and its likely we’ll see more of Rampage and Tito on other Viacom shows including Spike TV’s TNA Wrestling. Similar to the UFC, Bellator will have prelims air on cable network as Bellator plans to show prelims on Spike.
    He also stated that Bellator would not go into the business of monthly PPVs and would only hold these “when it makes sense.”
    Payout Perspective:
    We shall see how much DirecTV, Comcast, Time Warner, etc. decide to price the Bellator PPV. Its likely that they would have one price for non-HD and one for HD. The Invicta PPV which was promoted as a $15 PPV actually was charged by some distributors at $25 for HD. We might see the same scenario here (i.e. $45 non-HD, $50 or $55 for HD). The card will need to be stacked for fans to order this PPV which Bellator intends to do with multiple championship fights planned. Moreover, if the UFC decides to counter program with either a rerun of a recent PPV (Silva-Weidman I or Cain-JDS III or GSP-Hendricks for example) on Fox Sports 1 the same night or move its “Fight For the Troops” card to November 2nd, the same night as Bellator’s PPV, this could really hurt Bellator’s PPV.
    Soooooooo, anybody shelling out $45 to watch this?

    I shall not be. I wonder if any bars will be showing this like Hooters or Buffalo Wild Wings.
    You have to know what you don't know.

    I do not think Bellator has contracts signed for bars to show the PPV, but it might happen anyway. Some of you might remember when the UFC went after restaurants and bars for showing their PPV's without consent, so they might be weary on showing Bellator without legal papers signed.

    This PPV is gonna flop.

    So, can someone please explain to me how and why this PPV makes sense?

    maybe like the family members of the fighters and viacom to make their numbers look higher. i mean who in gods name would spend $45 on this shit when the ufc puts free shows that are significantly better than this one the regular?

    Significantly better?

    Quinton Jackson vs. Tito Ortiz
    Michael Chandler vs. Eddie Alvarez - for lightweight title
    Pat Curran vs. Daniel Straus - for featherweight title
    Muhammed Lawal vs. Emanuel Newton - for interim light heavyweight title
    Cheick Kongo vs. Vinicius Queiroz - heavyweight tourney final

    I've seen the UFC put out some genuine crap for a PPV before, This card ain't too bad

    Michael Chandler vs. Eddie Alvarez - for lightweight title - Great fight
    Pat Curran vs. Daniel Straus - for featherweight title - should be good
    Muhammed Lawal vs. Emanuel Newton - for interim light heavyweight title - Meh (i hope I see another spinning back-fist)
    Cheick Kongo vs. Vinicius Queiroz - heavyweight tourney final - under card fight in the UFC

    Short of two fights... this card is weak.
