Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney has confirmed that the “Summer Series” will feature four-man tournaments at 135, 205 and heavyweight.
“We are always striving to enhance every aspect of the Bellator formula for our fighters and fans,” Bellator CEO and Chairman Bjorn Rebney said. “Our champions consistently defending their titles against world class challengers who’ve earned their title shots creates a win/win for those two crucial groups. Three stacked four-man tournaments over our ‘Summer Series’ on Spike is another great step in our growth and evolution”
The fighters will be competing for future title shots in their respective divisions.
Bellator started airing on Spike TV this past January, shifting from MTV2. Events airs on Thursday nights.
