At tonight's season 10 debut, Bellator announced their PPV debut. On May 17, Bellator will stage their first ever PPV. The show will feature Eddie Alvarez vs. Michael Chandler III, the rubber match in the Lightweight series that has so far produced two Fight of the Year candidates.
Bellator originally planned a PPV for November 2 last year to be headlined by Rampage Jackson vs. Tito Ortiz and featuring Eddie Alvarez vs. Michael Chandler II. However, when Ortiz went down to injury, that event was moved to Spike TV. Now, Bellator makes attempt #2, this time to settle the score in Bellator's greatest rivalry.
No word yet on other fights for the Bellator PPV. But with King Mo winning tonight and Rampage Jackson taking to the cage later to face Christian M'Pumbu, you have to suspect Rampage vs. Mo would make sense as a co-main event alongside Alvarez vs. Chandler III.
Stay tuned to Bloody Elbow for more on the upcoming Bellator PPV as May 17 draws closer.
