Plot Synopsis

BELLATOR MMA LIVE (formerly BELLATOR FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIPS) features live matches from venues around the United States with many of the top mixed martial arts fighters in the world. Bellator, which is Latin for "Warrior," was founded in 2008 by Bjorn Rebney. Prior to the premiere of its fourth season on MTV2 on Saturday, March 5, 2011 at 9pm ET, Bellator fights had previously aired on Fox Sports Net, NBC, bi-lingual channel Mun2, ESPN Deportes, and the Score. Bellator continued to air on MTV2 through 2012, and switched to Spike for its eighth season, starting on Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 10pm ET. Spike presented the Season 10 premiere of BELLATOR MMA LIVE on Friday, February 28, 2014 at 9pm ET/6pm PT, featuring live coverage of Bellator 110 in Uncasville, CT that included Bellator's Light Heavyweight tournament opening round matches -- Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson vs. Christian M'Pumbu and Mikhail Zayats vs. King Mo Lawal -- and the opening round of the Featherweight tourney.
BELLATOR MMA LIVE returned for its eleventh season on Friday, September 5, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT on Spike. Season 11 opened with Bellator 123 from Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Casino, announced by Sean Wheelock and Jimmy Smith and headlined by the Featherweight Title fight, as reigning Bellator Champion Pat Curran defended his belt against Brazilian striker Patricio Pitbull. The night also showcased Cheick Kongo, King Mo, the Bellator debut of Bobby Lashley and a full preliminary card. The following week, BELLATOR moved to its regular timeslot: Fridays from 9-11pm ET/PT.
