In just a few short months, the Viacom owned Bellator MMA will be holding its second ever event on pay-per-view.
Bellator MMA President Scott Coker recently appeared on The MMA Hour and he announced the price of the upcoming Bellator 180 pay-per-view.
“The pay-per-view, just so you know, is $49.95,” Coker announced. “Some providers, I think they have the ability to choose and pick (prices) and whatever, but suggested retail price is $49.95.”
This will be the promotion's second foray into pay-per-view, their first pay-per-view card was Bellator 120. The main event of that show saw Quinton “Rampage” Jackson defeat King Mo by decision, the two are set to rematch at Bellator 175.
Bellator 120 cost $39.99, which means that the promotions second attempt at pay-per-view will be seeing a $10 increase.
