Bellator’s second pay-per-view is slowly coming together — and now it has a price tag.
Bellator president Scott Coker on Monday revealed that the June 24 card at New York’s Madison Square Garden will be available for purchase in high-definition for $49.95.
“The pay-per-view, just so you know, is $49.95,” Coker announced on The MMA Hour. “Some providers, I think they have the ability to choose and pick (prices) and whatever, but suggested retail price is $49.95.”
Bellator’s upcoming show will be the second pay-per-view staged under the Bellator umbrella and the first under the stewardship of Coker, who replaced Bellator founder Bjorn Rebney in mid-2014.
The event will be headlined by a grudge match between UFC veterans Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva. Three additional fights have thus far been announced for the pay-per-view card: a heavyweight contest between Fedor Emelianenko and Matt Mitrione, a welterweight title fight between reigning champion Douglas Lima and recent free agent signing Lorenz Larkin, as well as a lightweight title fight between Bellator champion Michael Chandler and Brent Primus.
One more non-title fight is expected to be added to the pay-per-view card.
