As expected Bellator is expanding from four tournaments per season to six beginning in 2013.

According to Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney, it's all part of the organization's goal to have each of its titles defended three times per year.

In the past 12 months, Bellator's eight titles have been defended just six times total. But with the move from MTV2 to the bigger Spike TV in 2013, that should change.

So he's expecting 21 title defenses a year? I like the sound of that. I also like the sound of Bellator as a more active organization with a bigger audience.

If only DFW expected the same level of activity from his champions....granted three defenses in a year isn't always doable, but that should be the goal, in my opinion.

I'm thinking it will be more like twice a year but if they can get 3 fights out of some of these guys i'll be a happy dude
