The landscape of the MMA world changed this week as the Bellator promotion was purchased by its broadcast partner, Viacom. As part of the deal, the promotion will leave MTV2 for Spike TV in 2013.
Recent UFC featherweight title challenger Kenny Florian has announced that he will not retire despite his third failed attempt at UFC gold. The catch? He'll be returning to the lightweight division.
Also of note, MMA Live host Jon Anik will be leaving ESPN to join the UFC as a member of its broadcast team.
