'Fight Master: Bellator MMA' cast unveiled with Riggs, Lozano and 30 others


The debut season of “Fight Master: Bellator MMA” debuts June 19 on Spike TV, and the organization has unveiled the cast of 32 welterweights who will compete in the show’s tournament.

Many familiar names are part of the cast, which features Randy Couture, Greg Jackson, Frank Shamrock and Joe Warren as coaches.

The show, which debuts at 10 p.m. ET/PT with announcer Jimmy Smith as its host, airs weekly, and the eventual tourney winner earns $100,000. Unlike the UFC’s similar and popular reality series, “The Ultimate Fighter,” Bellator fighters get to choose their own coaches and opponents on the show.

“Fight Master: Bellator MMA” Season 1 features 10 episodes, including an opening three that feature qualifying bouts. The series concludes with a live finale, and the winner will get a berth into a future Bellator tourney.

Notable cast members include the likes of Mike Bronzoulis, Chris Lozano, Joe Riggs, Bryan Travers, Artenas Young and others.
