A new report from MMAJunkie suggests that Bellator Fighting Championships are set to unveil a new television deal which will see their future shows air live on the FX cable station.
For the past two seasons Bellator has aired primarily on Fox Sports Net, which has led to scheduling problems, with tape-delay becoming the norm in many regions, leaving fans confused as to when they could actually watch the show.
FX would be seen as a more stable platform for the promotion, and with the channel being available in 100 million homes this new deal could help solidify Bellator’s status as one of the leading MMA promotions in North America.
Though the deal has not yet been confirmed by the company, it is also believed that highlights packages will also be available on both Fox Sports Net and Fuel TV.
Bellator are currently planning their fourth season which is set to air on a weekly basis in the spring of 2011 with their usual tournament format in place.
