With Tito Ortiz (16-11-1 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) out of their planned Bellator 106 pay-per-view headliner, Quinton Jackson (32-11 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) instead will meet fellow UFC vet Joey Beltran (14-9 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) in Bellator 108's headliner.
Officials today announced the light-heavyweight matchup.
Bellator 108 takes place Nov. 15 at Ovation Hall at Revel Atlantic City. The main card airs on Spike TV following prelims on Spike TV.
"Rampage" was a centerpiece of this weekend's promotional push for Saturday's Bellator 106 event. However, when Ortiz dropped off the card with a fractured neck, Jackson also was pulled from the lineup, and the card shifted to Spike TV.
"I want to thank Joey Beltran for stepping up for the fight so I can get my first Bellator victory out of the way," Jackson stated. "He'll have the unfortunate honor of taking the ass-whooping I was going to give Tito. My body is in incredible shape right now. I feel like I did in PRIDE, and Joey Beltran is the right guy to put on an exciting fight and showcase what I’ve been working on."
