Scott Coker Plans On Holding Next Bellator Pay-Per-View In 2018


Bellator MMA has run a total of 180 shows during their existence and only two of those shows have been pay-per-views.

The promotion is planning on entering the pay-per-view market a third time, but not until early next year.

"I think we were trending all night, we were No. 1 on Twitter all night," Bellator president Scott Coker said after Bellator 180. "This night had a lot of heat and was promoted extremely well. This was our first one, so we're excited to come back and do a pay-per-view maybe the beginning of next year and keep going. We're not going to just do it every month, but when we do this, there will be mega fights and big events just like this."

Prior to the Bellator 180 event, the last time the promotion appeared on pay-per-view was Bellator 123 and that was headlined by the first meeting by King Mo and Rampage Jackson.

While Coker plans on holding another pay-per-view next year, a location has yet to be set for the historic event.

"We'll be back to do something next year, whether it's here, or it could be Los Angeles, it could be Dallas, it could be the Bay Area, but that hasn't been decided yet,” Coker said.

In the main event of Bellator 180, it was Chael Sonnen earning a unanimous decision over longtime rival Wanderlei Silva.
