Randy Couture, Frank Shamrock, Joe Warren and Greg Jackson discuss the tournament format that "Fight Master: Bellator MMA" will use.

On "Fight Master: Bellator MMA" each coach will helm one of four separate fight camps for 32 up-and-coming fighters looking to fight their way into the Bellator tournament and a $100,000 cash prize.

The 32 fighters, competing for a spot in the welterweight tournament in the Fall of 2013, live and train together in four camps led by the aforementioned coaches. The fighters control their own destiny. They choose which camp to train with and which opponent they want to fight next.

The series will delve into the fighters' personal stories for a glimpse into the often arduous journey that led them to "Fight Master." Viewers will get to know the man behind the fighter, and follow them on their quest for victory.

"The fighters control their own destiny. They choose which camp to train with and which opponent they want to fight next."

Can someone explain how that works?? What do they do when nobody choose Shamrock or Warren? How can every fighter choose who they want to fight? That doesn't work.

Also, seems like this show isn't going to do much for the fighters in the long run. They go through a grueling tournament just for a spot in another tournament. And if they lose in the first round, then what? They aren't getting in another tourney and therefore Bellator isn't going to put any spotlight on them.

At least with TUF you win the tournament with your last fight being a win in the UFC and then they try to build you up slowly. Just don't really get this show yet.

Othello - 32 fighters that currently aren't signed to a major promotion.....bleh..... I can only imagine what kind of talent level they will be at.

I would have to guess that it's mostly fighters who didn't make it on TUF the past few years. Unless of course they're all Russian.

Good point. I never really considered the Russian angle. Bellator does seem to get a decent amount of good prospects from there.

I would actually prefer that they were all fighters from overseas. We'd at least have a chance at seeing some new talent. UFC basically gets the majority of the good north american talent for TUF, and even now they have TUF Brazil going on which is doing WW's. So they won't have much luck there.

They couldn't get a more established name than Joe Warren? Is Miletich tied up?
