Like it or not, veterans Tito Ortiz and Stephan Bonnar can still apparently draw a crowd.

Hate giving Tito his due but these numbers speak for themselves, very impressive Tito. P.S never doubt Scott Coker. I don't hate Dana like most of you folks but what I'd love to see what he could do with the UFC roster as president of the company.

More masked men + unsanctioned cage brawls to follow.

I don't know how it could be considered better than the UFC card at all, but I definitely agree that it was a good card. My problem with the bellator card is that the Brooks/Chandler fight should have clearly been the headline and it showed. That main event may have drawn a ton of viewers but they didn't exactly have the chance to watch a barn burner of a main event. On top of lackluster performances by both guys Tito acted like a 20 year old hot headed Ortiz when it was over. I can appreciate the sales, but if the direction of the company is one of over inflated names and theatrics for the purpose of ratings I'm not sure it'll last any longer than the Elite Xc.

So... This means that old UFC stars are still stars, no matter what organization they are in...

Oh, and the WWE build up before the fight, you gotta have that as well.
