bjorn-rebney-11.jpgBellator President and CEO Bjorn Rebney is in New York to promote this weekend’s stacked Bellator 106 event, which takes place Saturday and airs live on Spike TV and

Today between 3:45 and 4 p.m. ET, Rebney will be the latest MMA dignitary to ring NASDAQ’s closing bell in Times Square.

Meanwhile, Bellator 106 takes place at Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, Calif., and features a highly anticipated rematch between Bellator lightweight champ Michael Chandler and ex-champ Eddie Alvarez, who returns to the Bellator cage after a protracted legal battle with the promotion.

In the co-headliner, Bellator Season 8 light heavyweight tournament winner Emmanuel Newton will fight a rematch with his quarterfinal opponent, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, for the promotion’s interim title.

Bellator 106 was originally scheduled as a pay-per-view event featuring ex-UFC champs Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Tito Ortiz, but its broadcast host was switched to Spike TV when Ortiz suffered an injury, and Jackson was rescheduled to fight at next month’s Bellator 108.
