They are not planning another reality show…
MMAjunkie Radio recently interviewed Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney who confirmed that the Bellator MMA reality show, Fight Master, would not be returning for another season on Spike TV. Below are some highlights.
Rebney on Fight Master: "We've had serious of discussions, (Spike TV president) Kevin (Kay) and I about the show and the focus, and I think right now – and I'm never one to say we're never going to do ‘X,' or we're always going to do ‘Y' – but right now, the focus is really on the live events."
Rebney on there being no plans for another Bellator reality show: "There's no plan right now to do another reality show. Not to say that somebody might come to us with an amazing idea, or a slight variation on the theme of the idea that we already did. But right now, the hyper-focus is in doing (Eduardo) Dantas vs. (Rafael) Silva (fight), the (Daniel) Straus vs. (Pat) Curran trilogy to get this thing unveiled, because that's where the numbers are going to be generated. That's where the consumer interest is going to be. All the rest of this stuff supports it. It's the live events that fuel the machine."
