Bellator Moving to Three-Hour Shows with 2013 Move to Spike TV
by Shawn M. Smith on March 28, 2012

In an interview with USA Today, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney laid out the organization’s future plans that will coincide with the company’s move to Spike TV in January 2013. With move, Bellator Fighting Championships will now extend their main card coverage from two to three hours, allowing them to move more quickly through their tournaments and “loading up” more title shots during the season.

In his statement to USA Today:

“It’ll eliminate the need for the superfight because we’re going to be able to get six tournaments running simultaneously per season. You’ll get that consistent repetition of having the number one challenger earn the right to fight our champion.”
