DESCRIPTION:
(from Spike TV's press release, May 2013) The inaugural season of Spike TV's "Fight Master: Bellator MMA" brings together 32 of the best welterweight (170 lbs) fighters on the planet to compete for a spot in the Bellator MMA Tournament, the toughest tournament in sports, and a $100,000 prize. The series premieres on Wednesday, June 19 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT, featuring legends of the sport, Randy Couture, Greg Jackson, Frank Shamrock, and Joe Warren, as coaches. From Salvador, Brazil to Newcastle, United Kingdom to Great Falls, MT, the 32 fighters have traveled from all corners of the globe to the bayou of New Orleans, and will live and train together in four camps led by the aforementioned legendary coaches. This series is much more than just a tournament, as it will capture the reality of the competitors and the grueling training regimen it takes to become a world-class MMA fighter. The concept of "Fight Master: Bellator MMA" is unprecedented in that the fighters control their own destiny. They will choose which camp to train with and which opponent they want to fight next. The 32 fighters will partake in qualifying bouts over the first three episodes of the series. The finale will be telecast live on Spike with the winner moving on to an upcoming tournament. Bellator announcer Jimmy Smith will serve as host.
