There’s still no final decision if Bellator’s reality show Fight Master will return for a second season. The show aired over the summer and never kept a steady viewership. It was shifted to later time-slots as the season progressed and ratings began to sink.
Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney pointed to how reality TV isn’t doing that great in the ratings anymore, using the current season of The Ultimate Fighter as an example.
“We’ve had a few different discussions about what would happen,” said Rebney after Bellator 106. “If it’s going to come back, what it looks like if it comes back, what changes would be made, what wouldn’t be made.”
The show’s concept was fighters selecting their coach. Joe Riggs won the tournament at yesterday’s Bellator 106. He got a decision over Mike Bronzoulis to earn a future bantamweight tournament spot.
The finals were delayed for two months, as Riggs suffered an injury days before their September meeting.
