After a successful first season that netted the rookie Bellator Fighting Championships promotion solid coverage, company CEO Bjorn Rebney said a deal is now in place that will greatly expand the organization's television audience in 2010. Bellator debuted in April with a 12-week season that crowned four tournament champions and featured dozens of notables in non-tournament bouts. The season, though, aired via one-day tape delay and was televised only in Spanish on ESPN Deportes.

Bellator Season 2 Delayed, Champs Maybe To Fight Elsewhere
(mmaweekly.com)
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.

Free agent Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal reminds the haters he's just getting started
(mmajunkie.com)
Less than a year since his professional debut in Sengoku, multi-division prospect Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal is tired of defending his path in the world of MMA. After a 25-second win over longtime-MMA-veteran Mark Kerr this past Saturday at "M-1 Global presents Breakthrough," Lawal raised his record to 5-0 with four TKO's. But the 28-year-old told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) that it just doesn't seem to be enough for many people he talks to – and Lawal said the UFC's hype machine is partly to blame. "I guess people think I'm a veteran," Lawal said. "I'm not going to lie. Mark Kerr wasn't top competition. But my knee wasn't 100 percent. I told everybody I was 100 percent. Every fighter says they're 100 percent. I wasn't 100 percent, but I took the fight.

The Champion’s Clause: An MMA Comparative
(mmapayout.com)
Last week MMAPayout.com examined how Anderson Silva might avoid the “champion’s clause” in his UFC contract in order to seek the oft-rumoured boxing match with Roy Jones Jr. While Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, has sinced cleared the air with regards to Silva’s intentions, the situation nonetheless has provided an opportunity to shed more light on the champion’s clause - it may surprise you to know that the UFC isn’t the only organization with such a contractual obligation.
