If you ask Bellator Boss Bjorn Rebney, his promotions debut into the realm of pay-per-view exceeded expectations.
Dana White, isn’t buying it.
“It shocks me, because no [Bellator’s 120k PPV Buys didn’t happen]. Did Bjorn ever find out what the gate was? No, nobody ever got back on the gate?
“He doesn’t know what his gate was but he did 100,000 pay-per-view buys? The guy is a fucking clown, okay. Can you imagine having a night where you guys ask me, ‘hey, what’d you do for a gate tonight?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know.’ When will you know? ‘I won’t.’ It’s like, yeah you don’t want to give out your gate, and yeah you probably don’t want to give out a real pay-per-view number either. That’s why you guys are asking me if I give a shitt about what they’re doing and if we’re trying to go the same night to destroy them. I’m doing two events the same night sometimes on opposite ends of the world. Like I really give a shit where they are and what they’re doing.”
“I do [know their real PPV Buy rate]. I knew the real number before they knew the real number. That’s their business. Like his gate.”
