    CEO Bjorn Rebney and COO Tim Danaher are officially out at Bellator per a Spike TV press release
    http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2014/6/18...ut-at-bellator
    The statement from Rebney in the presser is as follows:

    "It is with bittersweet emotions that I announce that I am leaving the company I founded. I have great pride in having turned my vision into reality, a thriving business with television distribution to over 140 countries around the world, a partnership with one of the world’s largest entertainment giants and wide array of sponsors, partners and strategic allies all over the globe. This has been a wonderful eight plus years of creation, development and success. I will miss the courageous, strong and dedicated fighters I have had the pleasure of promoting, and equally, I will miss the incredibly hard working, remarkable team that has become a family for me over the years. Viacom and Tim and I differed in our views of the right strategic direction for Bellator, but Tim and I both wish them well,"

    Kevin Kay of Spike TV added, "I would like to thank Bjorn and Tim on behalf of Spike and Viacom for their dedication and hard work building Bellator from the ground up. They worked tirelessly in getting Bellator to where it is today. They were great partners to work with and we wish them all the best."

    Well if there's any additional chance Fedor comes back to fight i'm all for Coker replacing Bjork. Its certainly an upgrade for the promotion.

    Ok so how much time before Coker sells Bellator to Zuffa?

    I say 1-2 years.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    I doubt Zuffa buys Bellafuck. They're just going to continue to lose money until they're forced to shut down for good, at which point UFC signs the 3 or 4 fighters worth signing.

    Wasn't his call to sell Strikeforce either. His investors, Silicon Valley Sports & Entertainment, sold it out from under him, before he could find new investors.

    I see Viacom folding Bellator before selling it to Zuffa. Or Viacom purchasing a major stake in another promotion, and merging the 2.

    The company was slowly balking on its principles anyway.

    These things happen when you sell your soul to the network. I actually applaud the UFC for not doing so over the years; granted they have had casino money behind them.

    Actually, they were a viable company long before the bankruptcy.
