Bellator 106: Karo Parisyan vs. Cristiano Souza booked for 'Rampage vs. Tito' PPV on Nov. 2 in Long Beach

The card for Bellator's first foray into the realm of pay-per-view (PPV) has been set and it includes former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Karo Parisyan against "Fight Master" standout Cristiano Souza.

The fight card and week long slate of activities for Bellator MMA's inaugural pay-per-view (PPV) offering, Bellator 106: "Rampage vs. Tito," which is set to go down on Nov. 2, 2013 from the Long Beach Arena in none other than Long Beach, Calif., has finally been completed.

Now they can focus on advertising and selling those tickets!

The inclusion of former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) standout Karo Parisyan as he takes on Cristiano Souza on the Spike TV preliminary bouts bolsters the lead-in show that already includes the delayed welterweight finals of "Fight Master" featuring Joe Riggs vs. Mike Bronzoulis.

Parisyan (22-10) is a former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) titleholder and recently made his first Bellator appearance in a knockout loss to Rick Hawn at Bellator 95. "The Heat" comes into this fight having fought some of the biggest names in mixed martial arts (MMA) history, surely a fight with Souza will be a walk in the park, right?

Perhaps not.

Souza (6-0), also known as "Soldier Boy," is unbeaten in his short combat sports career -- though you may remember his exhibition loss to Evan Cutts on Fight Master that didn't go on his official record. Of his six victories, he has finished all but one fight by either knockout or submission. The last time he was seen inside the confines of a cage was Bellator 80, when he beat Robert Otani.

The rest of the Nov. 2 fight card is below and after seeing it in its entirety, I'm all in.

Will you buy it?
