It's also not behind an additional pay-per-view paywall so it wouldn't be a surprise to see an increased amount of fans locked in on the Chicago card this weekend. Here is the viewing information and a bit more about Bellator Michael Chandler will defend his title against bitter rival and reigning Bellator Featherweight ChampionPatricio Pitbull.
And edited version of the interview appears below. Jon Slusser: Pay-per-view events at their core are about the fight, and when you have the fights that are good enough to support a pay per view then you can start down that path. Not only has Scott created an incredible card with title fights featuring some of the biggest names in the history of the sport, but also we're doing it in a place that is right down the street from our offices in the media capital of the world.
This is our biggest show ever and we're bringing everything we got. We have fantastic pay-per-view partners in people like In Demand, DirecTV and Dish, and we have long-standing, multi-year relationships with these companies.
This is one more way not just to build and develop our business but to strengthen our relationships with those PPV providers. JS: We pride ourselves on our broadcast and our ability to entertain our fans both inside the cage and out.
Sports fans always want things in the highest resolution that they can get it. The first adopters for new resolution technologies are people who watch sports.
We always try to deliver as much as we can in and around our fights, so whether that's the entertainment in the arena or delivering something like 4K we try to do as much as we can to make the viewing experience great.
Like I said earlier the only way that's possible is to have a roster of talent so deep that you can support multiple pay-per-view events per year. So this is the start of a line of business; it's the start of this relationship with our great paper providers and partners, and its the start of what Scott Cocker's going to be providing to the fans.
JS: We have not announced what our next one will be but there is a next one coming soon.
