FREE SWINGING: Bellator and Spike officials said that with Tito Ortiz withdrawing with a neck injury from his scheduled Nov. 2 PPV bout against Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, the event "will now be free." Bellator Chair & CEO Bjorn Rebney on Friday said that Bellator 106 "will transition to Spike TV for a three-hour block" (MMAWEEKLY.com, 10/25). On Long Island, Mark La Monica noted the event "was to be the first pay-per-view event for Bellator, and the first fight in the promotion for Ortiz and Jackson" (NEWSDAY, 10/26).
