Owner of Bellator FC, Bjorn Rebney, spoke with The Fight Nerd at the Bellator open tryouts in Philadelphia, PA, last weekend. Bjorn gave his thoughts on how this season has progressed with his bantamweight, heavyweight and women’s tournaments. Rebney tells us the 115 lb. weight class will be the official women’s division in Bellator and how they stack up againsts competitors women’s divisions. We also talk about the main events at Bellator 33, Roger Huerta VS Eddie Alvarez (we spoke to the Bellator lightweight champ earlier this week and he gave us his thoughts on Huerta as well as Pat Curran and Shinya Aoki) and Lyman Good VS Ben Askren, and most importantly, when Bellator will return to the East Coast and maybe finally, New Jersey!
