As a couple of you readers noted after taking a gander over the recently updated UFC 173 lineup, the card is somewhat lacking in big fights department to warrant it’s $54.95 price. You could even go so far as to call it garbage-ass (I wouldn’t necessarily agree, but I’d die to defend your right to say it). In any case, several television providers similarly unveiled the price of Bellator’s upcoming pay-per-view earlier today, and at $39.95 for standard definition/$44.99 for HD, the Internet’s reaction has been critical to put it lightly. I know, I’m as shocked as you are.
While there are surely a few fights of merit on each card (read Seth’s breakdown of Bellator 120 here), both UFC 173 and the Bellator PPV are hard sells to even the most hardcore of MMA fans at their current prices. The question is: Which card would you actually consider paying for?

By the way, the results of our “Which Injury/Disease will Take Down Tito Ortiz?” poll were truly a thing to behold. With 30.24% of the vote, “neck injury” just barely edged out “back injury” at 29.86%. Greater than the results themselves, however, were the injuries/diseases you guys came up with, which read like one of Bob Ducca’s list of ailments. Some of our favorites:
-Lupalaria – The extremely rare combination of lupus and malaria
-rectal cranial insertion syndrome
-Chimney Sweep’s Lung
-Spontaneous vaginal growth
