Bellator CEO Scott Coker

The President of Bellator Scott Coker believes UFC 233, which was supposed to take place on January 26th in Anaheim was canceled because the promotion couldn’t put together a show worthy of pay-per-view.


Bellator, the rival company of UFC’s has also scheduled for a fight card that same night, headlined by the heavyweight Grand Prix final between Fedor Emelianenko and Ryan Bader. With that, CEO Scott Coker has his own theories about why the UFC came up with their decision.

“It didn’t work out for them because to me, it’s a roster issue,” Coker told media members in a Bellator 213 post-fight scrum over the weekend. “Who’s gonna fight? And if you’re gonna bring somebody to fight against the Fedor-Bader card, which is free on Paramount and on DAZN, and you’re gonna run on pay-per-view, you better have you’re A-Game.

“I just think they ran out of bullets, so here we are.”
