Always direct and incisive in their placements, Dana White seems to have found someone to hit the front. After the Bellator 106, an event that had its pay-per-view and eventually canceled the cable TV in the U.S., the leader of the UFC used Twitter to bring the organization's President Bjorn Rebney rival, but got no response. Rebney not only hit back and took the opportunity to celebrate the good figures achieved by the night of fights.
According to official figures released on Bellator 106, the event reached the milestone of 1.1 million viewers in the U.S., peaking at 1.4 million. So the night of fights broke the record of the current Bellator and became the most watched event in the history of the organization. Previously, the edition number 85, which had the battle between Michael Chandler and Rick Hawn as the main confrontation was the record holder, with audience of about 850 000 people.
