Any why do they edit out the word S P I K E on here?
It was a very nice card.

Bjorn Rebney is a classy guy. I like the Bellator commentators as well, Jimmy Smith in particular.

Bjorn Rebney is the founder of the company, but Viacom purchased a majority stake when they made the deal to go to S p i k e, which Viacom owns. They had a no-compete clause with Zuffa, which expired in 2013, which is why Bellator just made the move to the network. The deal was made some time ago.

In general, I don't see much comparison of the Zuffa ownership and Bellator's. Viacom is a huge corporation of course, however the Fertittas are basically tycoons.
