And his thoughts on future ones...
Bjorn Rebney recently spoke about this May's Bellator 114, which will be their PPV debut. Check out the highlights:
On his anticipation for the PPV: "I'm stoked. I'm unbelievably excited. I look at this pay-per-view and I say to myself, honest to God, if I were a fan and had nothing to do with this company, I'd be excited about it. That's the measuring stick. ‘Mo' and ‘Rampage,' and Alvarez-Chandler III, they're good fights and compelling for different reasons. One of them has all this animosity and hatred to it. It's going to be great. It's going to be an awesome show."
On this PPV going better than their last attempt: "I've been around the fight industry now going on 23 years. Doing it isn't so much the issue. There are a lot of pieces, a ton of moving pieces that go into pay-per-views. This one's coming together really well. It feels good going in."
On future PPV plans: "I want to do pay-per-views when it absolutely makes sense, like scratch and sniff. Like, we could sit down and look at each other absolutely straight-faced and say, ‘Yeah, that deserves to be on pay-per-view.' Asking people to pay $49 for something, you have to provide a show that really sings. It's got to feel like a big fight show. So two, maybe three (a year). But if it doesn't fit, we're just going to do it on Spike."
