Scott Coker talks Bellator MMA during Spike TV Conference Call
This video is hosted from www.youtube.com
Spike TV held a conference call for members of the press this evening, which featured Spike TV President Kevin Kay and former Strikeforce President and new Bellator MMA President, Scott Coker.
The pair took questions from the press during the 30-minute long call, which included answering questions about plans for the next Bellator pay-per-view and television format (and if tournaments will continue to be a huge part of the business model), what will happen to exist #1 contenders and the current lightweight title situation between Eddie Alvarez, Will Brooks & Michael Chandler, if Coker is bringing any of his old Strikeforce team to the promotion, Quinton Jackson's tweets about retiring now that Bjorn Rebney has left the company, and much more.
The Fight Nerd had a chance to interview Bellator MMA lightweight contender, Michael Chandler, at a recent press event in NYC. In part two of this interview, Chandler talks about the recent change in power when Bjorn Rebney left Bellator MMA and was replaced by former Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker, and what he would like to see Coker change and do differently in this role. Chandler also tells us if he has any plans to ever return to amateur wrestling or if he will stay in MMA for good, and we ask him if the money was as good in wrestling as it was in MMA whether he would have stayed in the wrestling scene. Plus, we ask the age-old question - does Michael Chandler have a nickname? watch video >>

The Fight Nerd was at the TNA Impact Wrestling press conference at the Manhattan Center on June 25, 2014, and got 60 seconds with Impact Wrestling President Dixie Carter. Literally, it was a minute including my time to set up the camera, since she was not doing interviews, and within 30 seconds I had a PR person telling me to wrap it up. Due to the short time I had with her, I mostly got non-answers regarding any response to Scott Coker taking over Bellator MMA and the partnership with her company and his, as well as if Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and King Mo will be hitting the six-sided ring anytime soon. I did my best, folks. Enjoy Dixie! watch video >>
The Fight Nerd got some time with Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran at a recent Bellator MMA Press event, where we talked about how his injury has been healing up and how his upcoming rematch against Patricio Pitbull in September for Curran's title at Bellator MMA 123. We discuss the history between these two fighters, as well as how their Twitter war has been heating up the feud between these two more than Curran's trilogy with Daniel Straus. We also talk about any potential plans for a fight with Frodo Khasbulaev, and his thoughts on Bjorn Rebney leaving Bellator and Scott Coker coming in to take over his role, and what changes Curran would like to see Coker implement in this new era for Bellator MMA. watch video >>
