Bellator Fighting Championships finally has its new home on cable. Starting next year, Bellator will broadcast it fights on MTV2, as the promotion enters a new season.

Bellator Fighting Championships finally found its new home on cable after striking a three-year partnership with MTV2. Starting next year, the cable network will broadcast two live 12-week tournaments per year, as well as a collection of special feature events. Bellator’s primary broadcast tandem for its second and third season was Fox Sports Net. However, those broadcasts were met with dissatisfaction due to some delay caused by various network obligations.
