    Finally we get Bellator live !

    Post  Cowboys From Hell on Fri Jun 07, 2013 11:07 am

    Bellator MMA on Thursday announced that it is finally moving into the U.K. market with a new television deal.
    Bellator will begin airing its live events with Bellator 96 on June 19 on the VIVA channel in the U.K. VIVA is owned by Viacom, which is also owns Bellator and Spike TV.
    VIVA will air Bellator’s Summer Series events, as well as its ninth season over the fall and winter of this year.
    Bellator’s foray into the U.K. market increases its global reach to 116 countries and territories. Available in every one of the U.K.’s 26 million TV households, VIVA has one of the highest profiles amongst 16 to 34-year-olds of any UK channel, with 50 percent of its audience comprised of that hard-to-reach demographic.
    Bellator is the first mixed martial arts franchise to be televised on the channel.
    “We are thrilled to finally bring the pure excitement of Bellator MMA to the legions of dedicated and knowledgeable mixed martial arts fans in the U.K.,” remarked Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney. “Our long awaited expansion into the U.K., one of the world’s MMA hot beds further illustrates our continued ascension in the MMA world.
    Bellator also recently announced the signings of three top U.K. MMA fighters in Martin Stapleton, Rob Sinclair and Paul Sass.
    Rebney on a Wednesday conference call indicated that Bellator would be bringing several fighters from the U.K. based Wolfslair fight team to the promotion following its signing of Wolfslair fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
    With the VIVA deal in place, Bellator will continue to aggressively pursue top British fighting talent.

    I should of read this article first before making a comment on the other Very Happy

    The time slot works out a little better for you at home as well,previous Bellator main cards have not started until 10pm EST,3am GMT,but I see 96's main card starts at 8pm EST,1am for you lot.

    I would imagine that this is a permanent time slot,but it'll suck for them,when they return to the west coast,having the card start at 2pm,main card 5pm on a weekday.

    Don'tknow if any of you saw the 'Fight Master' episode, or in fact whether it was aired on that channel, but it looked okay. Liked the format (fighter gets to pick one of four coaches), and I thought that the quality of fights in the first episode was ok. Hopefully it will focus on the fights and training (as the recent TUF did) and not on any house shenanagins.
