Davis vs Bader on Spike for the Preims makes no sense especially with a fighr on the PPV that no one even knows who they 2 guys fighting are

I too was like wtf why isnt this on the ppv...?

But after some thinking and talks with a few people i figured it out.

Bellator offered Larkin a spot on the ppv as part of his contract offer,he didn't know it'd be for the title though haha.Bader vs Davis isnt on prelims its a separate event and they are headlining it.

A separate thought as well is the first fight wasn't super entertaining so just in case keep them on the lead in.Also them headlining will draw good numbers and hopefully get some casuals to buy the ppv.


I think there is enough name value on the card,not saying davis vs bader wouldn't elevate the card but i dont think them being on the ppv would necessarily garner a ton more buys.Pico debuting on the ppv makes it pretty clear bellator has high hopes for him and they aren't giving him an easy first fight,against LFA title challenger should be very interesting.

So 184 loses Bader vs. King Mo and gets nothing in return.....I feel robbed since I did buy tickets to this event and that was a pretty high profile fight, main card or not.

King mo vs bader was ALWAYS headlining Bellator 180.......mo got injured so now its the title fight......i have no idea what your talking about as far as bellator 184,...,

I don't even think bellator 184 has tickets available or any fights announced.
