In the wake of their new broadcast deal with SpikeTV, the GLORY World Series is apparently interested in co-promoting with fellow SpikeTV mainstay Bellator MMA. GLORY Sports International’s Marcus Luer discussed the potential for such an arrangement with MMAFighting.
“If the opportunity shows up with a fighter, we are open to explore. We had some discussions with [Bellator CEO] Bjorn [Rebney] a while back but nothing concrete.”
Bellator officials have yet to comment on the matter.
The arrangement could set up a few potential explosive pairings, however their would be issues to navigate with some GLORY fighters (including Tyrone Spong) signed to the World Series of Fighting.
