by Ariel Helwani | source: bellator.com

Spike TV announced on Tuesday that it will team up with eight-time Emmy Award winner Bertram van Munster, the co-creator and executive producer of The Amazing Race on CBS, to produce a Bellator reality show. The show will air on the cable network in 2013. No further details about the show, including its air date, were announced at this time.

"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," van Munster stated in a press release issued by Spike TV.

 Not to mention the fact that Coker didn't want to sell in the first place.  He just got blindsided by his investors and had his company sold out from under him.  If Coker had his druthers, that sale would never have happened.

Champion's clauses are not infinite.  They have an expiration date. Lombard has a champion's clause in his contract.  It is the only thing keeping him there.  But it is about to expire.  Same goes for Alvarez, although his loss to Chandler rendered the clause moot before it could expire.

I totally disagree.Bellator's smartest option is to stay as a "minor league" promotion.Trying to compete with the UFC has historically resulted in either bankruptcy or buyout. The sport NEEDS organizations like Bellator to groom up-and-coming talent as give opportunities to guys who washout from the UFC to gain some more experience against legit comp.And give me a break on calling into question Coker's dedication and passion to the sport. He's been involved in martial arts and fight promoting for over 25 years. He turned a regional kickboxing promotion into the #2 MMA promotion in the world - and he actually made money doing it.Anyone who thinks they have more passion than him should try their hand at local promoting for a decade or two.

It would be great if it were behind-the-scenes training and day-in-the-life of tournament participants. That way you get to know the fighters, raising the stakes of the tourney, plus people get to see what training is really like in a legit MMA camp.

I love Bellator.  I don't like all the hipster MMA fans who talk shit about the UFC while going on and on about how great Bellator and other organizations are.

I feel if Bellator loses Lombard to the UFC, that they will be set back, BIG TIME. I don't understand why he does not have a champions clause. In ANY organization, you need to have the champ defend his belt, or he can't bounce; house rules. Bellator fucked up on that one.
