Payout Perspective:

The 617,000 viewers is a very good replay rating considering it was the third on Spike TV.  Still, it shows that the promotion of the event and Tito Ortiz can draw fans to watch an event.

    “Bellator 131 featured Tito Ortiz narrowly defeating Stephan Bonnar in the main event. ”

    Tito owned Bonnar the whole fight. One retarded judge gave the fight 29-28 to Bonnar, the other two 30-27 Tito. It wasn’t even a close fight.
