Bellator will feature three four-man tournaments for their 2013 Summer Series. The promotion will feature four-man tournaments in the heavyweight, light heavyweight, and bantamweight tournaments. The promotion announced the move via press release on Wednesday.
Bellator President Bjorn Rebney stated:
“We are always striving to enhance every aspect of the Bellator formula for our fighters and fans, our champions consistently defending their titles against world class challengers who’ve earned their title shots creates a win/win for those two crucial groups. Three stacked 4-man tournaments over our Summer Series on Spike is another great step in our growth and evolution”
Start dates for the tournaments will be announced shortly. The promotion will return to its traditional eight-man brackets this fall.
