Wolfslair deal with Viacom 'worth up to $50m'
September 19th 2013

The Wolfslair team are celebrating this week after signing a deal with Viacom with a potential value of up to $50 million.

It includes a contract with movie studio Paramount for at least one film, according to a report in the Liverpool Echo this week.

Former PRIDE FC and UFC light-heavyweight champion Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson is one of the key components of the deal with Viacom.

Aside from his contract with Bellator MMA, he also has a deal for a reality show and a contract with TNA Wrestling.

Other Bellator-signed fighters from the Wolfslair, such as Gavin Sterrit, have been given pay-per-view point-deals as Bellator moves towards that platform.

“The film deal with Paramout is really exciting and Quinton has said he wants plenty of Scousers [Liverpool natives] in his movie because of their sense of humor. They crack him up,” Wolfslair owner Lee Gwynn told the Liverpool Echo.

Jackson will headline Bellator’s first pay-per-view offering when he squares off with former training partner Tito Ortiz on Saturday November 2. The fight will air in the UK on the freeview channel VIVA, which is part of the Viacom stable.
