Bellator MMA’s reality competition will debut this summer with four standout coaches.

“Fight Master,” Bellator officials told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), will air Thursday nights on Spike TV starting in June. Ahead of the new series, the four coaches sat down to talk about their philosophies heading into the show.

The coaches and trainers for the series, which will feature 32 welterweight fighters, will be former UFC champion and Hall of Famer Randy Couture, acclaimed coach and trainer Greg Jackson, former UFC champion Frank Shamrock and former Bellator champion Joe Warren.

Each of those coaches will lead four separate camps. The fighters will live and train together within the camps. But in a unique twist, the fighters will choose which camp they want to be a part of.

Couture, Jackson, Shamrock and Warren discussed what each brings to the table as a coach – and even which they’d prefer to be coached by if in the fighters’ situation.

The 32 fighters will be competing for a spot in Bellator’s welterweight tournament this fall. The winner of that tournament gets a guaranteed $100,000 in tourney prize money, plus a welterweight title shot.

The show, which has been taping in the New Orleans area, will feature two-round fights with oversight from the Louisiana State Boxing & Wrestling Commission. The premiere episode, with Bellator analyst Jimmy Smith serving as host, will feature eight qualifying fights. Subsequent episodes each will feature at least one fight, culminating in a live season finale on Spike TV with the winner advancing into the fall 170-pound tourney.

Check out the video above featuring Couture, Jackson, Shamrock and Warren in a roundtable.
