Bellator's inaugural pay-per-view has been hit by the injury bug.

Tito Ortiz suffered a neck injury in training which will keep him out of next weekend's fight against Quinton Jackson, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Bellator is currently seeking a replacement for Ortiz, and it is unclear at this time whether Jackson will remain on the Nov. 2 card. There is a chance next weekend's pay-per-view card turns into a Spike show with Jackson being moved to another event.

MMAFighting.com reached out to both Jackson and Ortiz and their respective camps, but they could not be reached for a comment. Ortiz did send out an ominous tweet Friday morning.

More as it becomes available.

Someone in another forum summed it up perfectly, "Stevie Wonder saw this one coming." :laugh:

I thought I had mentioned it here, but can't find my post. I called this when the fight was announced. I knew there was no way one of these guys made it without pulling out of the fight.

This may have saved Rampage, not necessarily from getting whooped but I have seen his little show and he did not take this seriously at all.

Edit: Bellator is stating that Tito fractured his neck and is a new injury, which to that I hope he is ok. I found this fight to be funny and knew it wouldn't happen, but I never wish for anyone to be seriously hurt so hopefully he will be ok.

Card is also moved from PPV to Spike, which is the right move.
