Bellator MMA to stage three international events in 2016

Post by Kingfedor on Tue Nov 17, 2015 12:04 pm


Bellator MMA, the emerging mixed martial arts promotion, will hold its first three events outside of North America in 2016, with stops planned in London, Tel Aviv, and Italy. The announcement was made today by Scott Coker, President, Bellator MMA. 
 
The event in London will be held at the O2 Arena with the main card broadcast LIVE on Channel 5 in the UK and on tape-delay on Spike TV in the U.S. Also, Spike UK will broadcast the prelims LIVE in the United Kingdom.
 
"We are thrilled to bring the incredible excitement of hard-hitting Bellator action featuring some of the best athletes in the world to our new global partners in the UK, Israel, and Italy," said Coker. "The London event is especially encouraging as we will broadcast the main card in the UK on one of the country's most-distributed broadcast channels, Channel 5."
 
In Israel, the Bellator MMA broadcast will air locally on Ego Total.

Great to hear. Hopefully, they don't go overboard like the UFC's "World Fucking Domination" since that hasn't done UFC any favors.

Not to mention that Bjorn's model wouldn't let them do this because they're running weekly shows so they can't go to different countries when they need to be elsewhere a week later.

Bellator is trash now.

They could run a show in every country and it wouldn't make the product any better.

Cage fans being cage fans.

Once again with the cage stuff. Explain to me how Bellator is trash NOW when they've always had a cage that you despise?

Why Tel-Aviv and Italy?

Sounds like Coker is just as good at hemorrhaging money as he was in Strikeforce

Anywhere they have a handful of fighters from.

Brazil. Russia would've been perfect up until the recent talent purge.

It's also possible that they specifically picked Italy and Israel because UFC hasn't gone there yet. I'm sure Brazil is great but how many events do the UFC hold every year there not to mention Jungle Fight and Shooto Brazil.

idiot! Bjorn had planned a UK event but it didnt happen

why you care about bjorn so much, he's last years news.... Bellator has changed they have less events now and can go to other countries for some shows....

London is a good place but I dunno how they'll do in Israel and Italy...it could backfire on them and they lose money.

The Italy event happened (though I have yet to see it). How was it? Anybody have gate, attendance, or ratings yet?

I don't know about live gate,attendence or that but it averaged 588,000 viewers.It went against a few other sports events but did ok numbers.

From mmapayout.com

The event occurred on a busy night for sports as it went up against playoff basketball and hockey. In addition, there was the replay of Pacquiao-Bradley (which drew 750,000 subscribers) and UFC on Fox earlier on in the evening.
