White Takes Jab At Bellator’s Failed Attempt At A Pay-per-view Card

Dana White is never one to play nice with a rival promotion, so his recent words regarding Bellator 106’s switch from a pay-per-view event to a free show might come as a surprise for some.

“It’s unfortunate,” White told the media at the post-event press conference for UFC Fight Night 30. “It breaks my heart. Couldn’t happen to a better bunch of guys.”

Most likely, White was saying this with a touch of sarcasm. He has been a frequent critic of Bellator, who, due to a neck injury suffered by UFC hall of famer Tito Ortiz, were forced to put their aspirations for Pay-Per-View on hold. In the past, he has chided Bellator for several things, particularly their recent handling of the Ben Askren and Eddie Alvarez contract negotiations.

    What I think tito’s undisclosed injury was to his bank account. Not to sure he would want to be apart of P.P.V that has more then a good chance of flopping. Considering that The U.F.C’s P.P.Vs Have not been selling to well.And rampage Has not went public with a statement as far as tito being injured. What I think what happened Was Bellator pulled the plug on this P.P.V to prevent a financial Disaster. Looking at the poll that was on BJ.PENN.com Things were not looking to well. to me this sounds about right

    “Most likely, White was saying this with a touch of sarcasm.” – You think? More than ‘a touch’. Another bullshit bjpenn.com article…
