Former TNA World Champion Bully Ray has made a serious offer, according to the Wrestling Observer and Mike Johnson of PWInsider, to replace Tito Ortiz in his main event Bellator fight against Rampage Jackson. The fight between the two former UFC icons was scheduled to take place at Bellator's debut pay-per-view, however Tito had to pull out at the last minute due to injury. Spike TV will be airing the fight card as a free television special instead.
Both Rampage Jackson and Tito Ortiz were briefly involved with TNA Wrestling as a part of the Main Event Mafia vs. Aces & Eights feud, respectively. Both were pulled out of nowhere, with one of the (somewhat ironic) storyline reasons being that Spike TV executives didn't want harm coming to the fighters so close to their premiere pay-per-view event.
