Bellator reality show fights to be official

 

Fighters on Bellator's new reality show aren't just competing for the right to participate in the promotion's fall welterweight tournament – every step counts.

Louisiana Boxing and Wrestling Commission Chairman Alvin Topham today confirmed to MMAjunkie.com that all fights on the reality show will be classified as two-round professional bouts.

However, official results from the show won't be released until after each episode airs, a Spike official confirmed.

A venue in the New Orleans area will host eight elimination fights.

Professional elimination bouts are a departure from Spike TV's previous work in MMA reality programming, which was partnered with UFC parent Zuffa before a split in 2011. "The Ultimate Fighter," which now airs on FX, was filmed in Las Vegas and featured exhibition bouts overseen by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. The bouts did not count on a participant's pro record.

I liked it as well. Bellator seems to do everything in there power to make there product as distinct as possible from the Ultimate fighter. I think that,in the end,this benefits us fans because we get to see two genuinely different shows that still both feature great fights.
