Expanding on their successful initial run on Spike TV, Bellator MMA will switch from 8-man to 4-man tournaments for the upcoming "Summer Series 2013" season, which will also feature the return of prized light-heavyweight "King Mo."

I don't know how I feel about Bellator incorporating the 4 man tournament on the heels of their biggest free agent signing (King Mo) stumbling during his first tournament shot. Can't help but get the feeling Bellator is force feeding him a title shot, after seeing the weak talent in the last tourney it would be naive to think there will be stiff competition for him. Plus aside from the questionable timing of this newly implemented 4 man tournament doesn't this kind of compromise their whole gimmick of a fair playing field for title shots? I don't know what's fair about summer tourney winner's having to only win 2 fights when traditional season winner's must win 3 fights to fight for the championship. & I don't want to hear that they can't fit in a full tourney during the summer series because its been done before. I don't like this 4 man tournament idea, hopefully its a 1 summer & done kind of thing.
