Bellator Fighting Championships will kick off their 4th season on March 5 at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino with the live broadcast airing on MTV2 starting at 9pm ET/PT.

MTV made the announcement along with Bellator on Wednesday.

The upstart MMA promotion signed on with MTV2 a few months back to showcase their latest season, which will feature several tournaments once again including light heavyweight, lightweight, featherweight and welterweight brackets.

“With our spectacular partnership with MTV2, MMA fans now have a place to watch Bellator live every Saturday night,” said Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney. “Our fourth season is absolutely loaded with talent, and I can’t wait to get the action started at Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino when we return to California on March 5.”

Tachi Palace is of course also home to the popular local Tachi Palace Fighting series which takes place at the same location and has showcased a ton of veteran talent as well as homegrown fighters from around the area.

The announcement also states that the season will air in 12 consecutive weekend broadcasts on Saturday night starting with the March 5 show in California. The date does coincide with the Strikeforce broadcast taking place on March 5 as well in Columbus, OH, airing on Showtime.

No bouts have been confirmed for the inaugural Bellator show for March 5, but an announcement could be forthcoming.
