Following the delay of its second season, Bellator Fighting Championships is trying to secure a fight for each of its four champions “in different markets around the world” before the start of 2010. Last month, word leaked that the promotion was pushing back the expected start date of its second season from October to the first quarter of 2010. They claim this is due to scheduling of venues for the promotion's 12 consecutive weeks. Bellator's CEO said he was open to any promotion that offered “the right opportunity,” though he anticipated the champions – featherweight Joe Soto, lightweight Eddie Alvarez, welterweight Lyman Good, and middleweight Hector Lombard – would fight above their natural class if they moonlighted elsewhere.
