Bellator hit the airwaves yesterday with the debut of their own reality show. The first episode showed five fights, leaving about 11 to go. Since the show was new, what to expect was a mystery.
Though only five fights aired, coach Frank Shamrock assures everyone that the show gains momentum once the teams are selected.
“Everybody was kind of winning moving forward, so I was just totally charged up,” said Shamrock to MMA Fighting. “And that’s when the game got going, in my opinion. The other coaches, once I landed the guys they wanted, making hard plays for them and getting that response back, that’s when the game picked up.”
Shamrock leads the pack of coaches with two of his fighters chosen. Everyone else has one fighter.
The winner of show takes $100,000 and a spot in an upcoming tournament. It’s set to conclude with the finale airing on the first episode of Season 9. That is set for September with Bellator 99.
Fight Master returns to TV next Wednesday.
