Randy Couture and Frank ShamrockAt a Viacom press conference in Santa Monica, Calif. on Tuesday, Bellator MMA announced the details of its upcoming reality show that will air on Spike TV.

The reality show is dubbed “Fight Master: Bellator MMA” and will feature four coaches: Randy Couture, Frank Shamrock, Greg Jackson, and Joe Warren.

The reality show will be similar to “The Ultimate Fighter” that aired on Spike TV through 14 seasons.  It will feature 32 aspiring welterweights competing in a tournament format for a six-figure payday and a slot into a future Bellator tournament.

The fighters themselves will select their coach and will decide whom they’ll face in elimination bouts.

“This was a fantastic opportunity for me moving forward and for the sport of mixed martial arts,” said Couture.

“The cornerstone of this show is really about the people behind it,” said Bellator president Bjorn Rebney.  ”The Amazing Race” creators Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri are the executive producers of the show.

The reality show’s filming is “immediately imminent” and is scheduled to debut this summer on Spike.
