Bellator intends to crown three new champions before end of 2017. Plans for Heavyweight, Women flyweight and women featherweight.

Currently, the promotion has no female titleholders, but that's expected to change March 3. A scheduled bout between Marloes Coenen and Julia Budd will determine the inaugural featherweight champion.

Bellator also plans to fill its vacant men's heavyweight title.

Bellator's heavyweight title has remained vacant since the company stripped former champion Vitaly Minakov because of inactivity. The last Bellator heavyweight title fight occurred in April 2014.

According to Coker, there were tentative plans for a heavyweight tournament in 2017, before the promotion brought in Russian icon Fedor Emelianenko. A heavyweight tournament remains a possibility this summer.

In addition, Bellator MMA president Scott Coker also says the promotion intends to book a women's 125-pound flyweight title fight at some point this year.

Can't believe it has been nearly 3 years since a HW title fight. Summer is still quite a bit away too.

They need a new champ soon. I was hoping they would start that tournament in early 2017. Not sure why the delay all the way until summer time.

Glad to see they will do a W125 title as well and not sitting on it until the UFC already got to work on one like they did with W145.
