Bellator Plans To Join Reality TV In 2013 With Move To Spike TV

Bellator Fighting Championships CEO Bjorn Rebney continues to push his company as hard as he can.

Next year, Bellator will move from MTV2 to Spike TV, and the fight promotion will also add in a reality television series, according to a recent press release by Bellator.

Bertran van Munster, who has won eight Emmy Awards and co-created The Amazing Race, will produce the hour-long show for Spike TV.

“We are thrilled to partner with an industry legend such as van Munster, whose creativity and ingenuity will expose Bellator to an expanded new audience next year on Spike,” Rebney said.

Van Munster had strong words for the fighters in Bellator, saying, “Some of the most physically-gifted and fascinating athletes in the world fight in Bellator, and I believe they make ideal subjects for an innovative new non-scripted series.”

Bellator plans to release further information in the coming months. With this addition, it seems Spike TV is planning to push Bellator as hard as they pushed the UFC, which can only create more interest in the sport.
