Scott Coker Announces First Three Bellator Events for 2015

GameStop, Inc.

Bellator 2015

“Welcome to Bellator MMA. I’m not going to say good luck to you guys, you guys know what you’re doing. You’ve been a long time in this game,” said MMA legend Royce Grace to the Bellator competitors.

During the pre-fight press conference at Bellator 131, President Scott Coker announced three major fight cards for the first quarter of 2015. The Featherweight Championship will be on the line as Patricio Pitbull defends his title against Daniel Straus on January 16, 2015 from Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, CA.

“With SpikeTV and Viacom behind this product, the sky’s the limit. Never have I experience the amount of commitment that Spike has given to this product. They were the other half of the success of MMA,” said Coker.

The second set of fights will feature combatants from across the pond as the British Invasion takes place on February 27th from the Mohegan Sun Area in Uncasville, CT as two championship bouts will take place. Middleweight Champion Douglas Lima faces Paul Daley and Light Heavyweight Champion Emanuel Newton battles Liam McGeary. Also on the card will be Sokoudjou vs Linton Vassell and Bobby Lashley vs. James Thompson.

“We are really excited about tonight. This is really the first event of the Scott Coker era. We have never been more excited about an event. You’re going to see a lot of colaberation tonight. Both Scott and the Bellator team have worked a long time to get to this point. When we first started working together a lot of things had to change and a lot of things had to happen. This is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Jon Slusser, Senior Vice President, Sports and Multi-Platform Programming from SpikeTV.

Bantamweight Champion Joe Warren will take on challenger Marcos Galvao on Friday, March 27th from the Winstar World Casino in Thackervill, OK.

The conference was open up for a Q&A and here are some highlights:

Question: Sokoudjou, you’ve been working hard to get back to the place where you want to be on TV and letting the public to see what you’re about?

Sokoudjou: I’m excited to be here. You’ll see on February 27th.

Question: Joe (Warren), can you talk about the rematch with Marcos Galvao

Warren: Yeah, I’m going to finish him in the first round.

Question: Bobby (Lashley), do you plan to split your time or take time off professional wrestling to focus on MMA?

Lashley: TNA’s schedule is lighter than WWE. We film all our shows in one week and then have a few weeks off. I plan to keep doing both and hopefully have two titles.
