Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Tito Ortiz set for Bellator PPV on Nov. 2

Everyone was expecting Quinton “Rampage” Jackson to fight Roy Jones Jr. in a boxing match, but there has been a change in plans.

“Rampage” called out his opponent for his first fight in Bellator, and Tito Ortiz walked down the ramp carrying his famous flag. The two are set to meet on Nov. 2 from the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, Calif.

The event will be the first pay-per-view show Bellator has done, but no price has been announced.

Tickets go on sale Saturday.
