Bjorn out Coker in
Cue ABBA references and Hokey Cokey song...
MMA Officials London, Essex and East Anglia representative
Apparently Bjorn is out because he wanted to stick to the tournaments & Viacom didn't.
Think he did a great job in building up Bellator, but so many tournaments with guys with little name value winning must have hurt them. Maybe keep the tourneys as a way of bringing new guys in, then using more established guys in the main event slots.
With that said I think Coker is a solid replacement, he also did a solid job building up Strikeforce. Although I thought he had strong links to Dana since the buyout??
PS Anyone know why Belator isn't on VIVA anymore?
really bummed that they are getting rid of the tournament format. It made Bellator different. They are just going to become UFC Lite under Coker.
