Bellator’s Fight Master has been renewed for a second season. Not sure when they’re going to announce it.

However, in a interview with MMAJunkie, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said the decision has not been made, and is not even the focus at present.

“That is news to me as the executive in charge of the Bellator brand,” laughed Rebney when asked if Season 2 is a go.

“(Spike TV President) Kevin (Kay) and I have had a lot of talks about it, but Kevin and I have been really heavily focused on this season and the pay-per-view. So any kind of consideration of other shoulder programming is really going to have to wait.
