It looks like the UFC won’t be the only MMA organization shifting things around in 2013, as word has surfaced stating Bellator plans on moving to Thursdays when the company debuts on Spike TV in January. The organization has been airing events on Friday nights on MTV 2/EPIX for the past few seasons including the current run of shows.
According to MMAJunkie, a New Jersey official on the State’s regulatory board revealed Bellator had booked a venue on January 10 in Atlantic City. The card is expected to serve as Bellator 85. No bouts have been linked to the lineup.
Spike TV officials were also sought for comment and neither confirmed nor denied the story, stating the two companies are exploring “many different options”. Bellator has yet to respond to the matter.
