Hardcore fans surely will, unless Bellator enhances the card with some fights that are relevant to 2013, not 2005. The promotion's roster isn't deep enough yet to make a whole lot of PPV-worthy fights without depleting everything else on its fall schedule, but the possibilities cited above can serve as a start to the conversation. Bjorn Rebney and his people need to jump in soon, though, before the tone of this conversation turns so overwhelmingly negative that no one wants to listen anymore.
