Posted by Larry Csonka on 06.18.2014



According to mmajunkie.com, Spike TV today announced Bjorn Rebney, Bellator's founder, chairman and CEO, as well as company president and COO Tim Danaher, have the left company, effective immediately. No reason was given, but as previously reported, Viacom was looking to replace Rebney with former Strikeforce CEO and founder Scott Coker. Rebney had the following to say about his departure…

"It is with bittersweet emotions that I announce that I am leaving the company I founded. I have great pride in having turned my vision into reality, a thriving business with television distribution to over 140 countries around the world, a partnership with one of the world's largest entertainment giants and wide array of sponsors, partners and strategic allies all over the globe.

This has been a wonderful eight plus years of creation, development and success. I will miss the courageous, strong and dedicated fighters I have had the pleasure of promoting, and equally, I will miss the incredibly hard working, remarkable team that has become a family for me over the years. Viacom and Tim and I differed in our views of the right strategic direction for Bellator, but Tim and I both wish them well.

I feel very privileged and honored to have been one of the guiding forces for developing Bellator into the largest MMA tournament based organization in the world," Danaher stated. "I've made tremendous life-long friends and feel blessed to have worked with such talented and dedicated people."
