The Fight Master: Bellator MMA final between Jackson’s MMA’s Joe Riggs and Xtreme Couture’s Mike Bronzoullis has been rescheduled for the Bellator 106 preliminary card on Spike TV. Bellator MMA officials announced the bout over the weekend.
This is the second time the reality show’s final has been set after Riggs was forced out of their Bellator 98 meeting with an injury. The two fighters worked their way to the final in different ways, with Riggs being the clear favorite from the start and Bronzoullis needing to rally multiple times to survive stiff competition in the tournament.
Bellator MMA will make its PPV debut on November 2 with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson taking on Tito Ortiz in the main event. In a rematch of their 2011 “Fight of the Year” nominee, former champion Eddie Alvarez will return to the promotion against champion Michael Chandler in the co-main event. The fight card will air live via PPV from the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, California. More bouts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
