No decision's been made...
Despite a report that it has been, Bjorn Rebney says that Bellator MMA: Fight Masters has not yet been renewed for a second season. A report was circulating last week saying that the show had been picked up for season two but Rebney laughed off the report and denied it.
"That is news to me as the executive in charge of the Bellator brand," said Rebney, adding, "(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."
He concluded, "There's no official announcement on 'Fight Master.' It's a good show; Joe (Warren) was great, Frank (Shamrock) was great – they were both here tonight. But there's no official statement on that at this point. It's literally not the central focus of what we're doing right now."
