At long last, Bellator’s MMA reality program has the coaching line-up, approximate air date and name that have been talked about for months. The show, “Fight Master: Bellator MMA,” will debut this Summer on Spike TV with coaches Randy Couture, Greg Jackson, Joe Warren and Frank Shamrock.
The show will feature 32 welterweight competitors that will fight their way into a “compound”: their version of a training and living space. Think “The Ultimate Fighter’s” house and training center rolled into one. Once there, four camps are created and fighters choose what camp they would like to train in.
Taping is to begin soon, with the fighters battling it out for a slot in Bellator’s welterweight tournament in the fall.
Also announced was another Randy Couture project, “MMA Rescue”, a three-episode series where Couture works to help rescue “struggling gyms into thriving enterprises.”
