The debut season of "Fight Master: Bellator MMA" debuts June 19 on Spike TV, and the organization has unveiled the cast of 32 welterweights who will compete in the show's tournament.

Many familiar names are part of the cast, which features Randy Couture, Greg Jackson, Frank Shamrock and Joe Warren as coaches.

The show, which debuts at 10 p.m. ET/PT with announcer Jimmy Smith as its host, airs weekly, and the eventual tourney winner earns $100,000. Unlike the UFC's similar and popular reality series, "The Ultimate Fighter," Bellator fighters get to choose their own coaches and opponents on the show.

"Fight Master: Bellator MMA" Season 1 features 10 episodes, including an opening three that feature qualifying bouts. The series concludes with a live finale, and the winner will get a berth into a future Bellator tourney.

Notable cast members include the likes of Mike Bronzoulis, Chris Lozano, Joe Riggs, Bryan Travers, Artenas Young and others.

Joe Riggs ? I guess I misunderstood the concept of show. I believe this show was about discovering new unknown talented fighters, like the UFC TUF series. Not existing fighters who have already had there chance.

Good to see Rob Mills made it onto the show. He's from my part of the UK, the North East and he's been around the local MMA scene for as long as I can remember.

Also, Joe Riggs is only 30. Hard to believe I know, but true.

I would love the opportunity to watch this on tv.

I can't see Bellator ever getting a UK tv deal though, with even the UFC struggling to establish themselves over here still......

Big Nog is younger than Anderson Silva. Riggs may only be 30 but he has too many miles on him.

Agreed he has too many miles on him, i didn't realise he was only 30 though.

I think they picked Riggs to maybe get some attention to the show with someone most people know.
I'm actually pretty interested in this and i'll watch for sure.

I can't wait to see how Joe Warren teaches the cast of fighters on how to get KTFO....in a brutal and spectacular fashion....I'm not kidding, it takes talent to do that - repeatedly

So there are some miss steps (coaches and older fighters) no big deal. At least they are making the attempt. It's free fights on free tv by a notable organization, I will take it!
