Tito Ortiz' neck injury forced Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney to cancel their first ever PPV event

Bellator MMA encountered a major roadblock leading up to their first ever PPV event when Tito Ortiz injured his neck while preparing for his showdown with fellow UFC legend Quinton Jackson in Bellator 106. As a result, Bellator scrapped the headlining bout and they turned the PPV into a regular event on Spike TV. The lightweight title fight between Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler will now serve as the main event in the four-fight main card that includes the featherweight title fight between Pat Curran and Daniel Strauss and an interim light heavyweight title fight with Muhammed Lawal and Emanuel Newton. The card will also feature the “Fight Master” finals between Joe Riggs and Mike Bronzoulis.

Cheick Kongo and Vinicius Spartan will compete for the heavyweight title shot in the main card of Bellator 106

Bellator officials have announced today that the heavyweight tourney finals between Cheick Kongo and Vinicius “Spartan” Queiroz will take place in Bellator 106. The addition of the fight completed the event’s 5-fight main card that is headlined by a light heavyweight showdown of UFC legends Tito Ortiz and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

Kongo has recently made his successful debut with Bellator by stopping Mark Godbeer in the second round of the tournament’s semifinal bout held more than a week ago. It marks Kongo’s first fight outside of UFC since signing with them in 2006. He parted ways with the promotion last April after the KO loss to Roy Nelson.

Queiroz, on the otherhand will try to look for his first back to back wins with Bellator. He is coming off a sensational knockout over Lavar Johnson where he stopped the UFC veteran in less than a minute of the first round of their fight in Bellator 102. Prior to that win, he was defeated by now Bellator heavyweight champion Alexander Volkov in the semifinals of Bellator’s season 7 heavyweight tournament.

Dana White would love to work with Cris Cyborg but only with Tito Ortiz out of the picture

Cris “Cyborg” Justino is perhaps the best female fighter in the planet and is unquestionably the best that is not fighting under the UFC banner. Cyborg, now 28 years old is the current Invicta FC women’s featherweight titleholder and former Strikeforce featherweight champion. She has won all of her fights after losing her professional debut.

In 2009, Cyborg ended the reign of Gina Carano as the queen of MMA. She easily disposed Carano and stopped the latter with punches towards the end of the first round of their battle. It was the start of her era as the MMA’s new queen. She later sparked a rivalry with Strikeforce and now UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.
