Just eight days before it was slated to host its first pay-per-view event, Bellator MMA has been forced to move the event to Spike TV due to an injury to headliner Tito Ortiz.

Ortiz, the former UFC light heavyweight champion, has suffered a fractured neck and has been forced out of the main event against another former UFC light heavyweight champion, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

With the loss of the main event, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney and Spike President Kevin Kay decided to move the fight card to Spike TV.

The card will now be headlined by a lightweight title rematch between current champion Michael Chandler and the man whom he defeated to capture the belt, Eddie Alvarez. Two additional title bouts will grace the main card as Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal takes on Emanuel Newton for the promotion’s interim light heavyweight championship and featherweight champion Pat Curran will put his strap on the line against tournament winner Daniel Straus.

The Spike TV-broadcast event will air live at 9 p.m. ET on Saturday, Nov. 2 from the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, Calif. The night’s preliminary card will stream live on Spike.com beginning at 6 p.m. ET.
