This new partnership will help expand Bellator’s fan base allowing Latin, Hispanic, and Spanish viewers to experience the promotion at its best. The Mun2 broadcast team will feature the long time Bellator Spanish language commentating team of George X and Manny Rodriguez, who hold the distinct honor of announcing every Bellator event in history, dating back to Bellator’s debut in 2009.
Here is what Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney had to say about the partnership with mun2:
“Both Bellator and mun2 have both experienced tremendous growth since our earlier alliance, so when the possibility of re-aligning with mun2 for anything/everything Bellator Spanish language in the US, the move was a natural fit,” he also said “Since our first event, Bellator has recognized and respected Hispanic consumers as some of the greatest MMA fans in the world, and this partnership ensures that audience will have a new spectacular home where it can watch Bellator LIVE and Best Of on a weekly basis.”
It will all begin on Friday June 29th, Mun2 will broadcast a series of action-packed, Spanish language highlight shows recapping previous Bellator events including all the dramatic knockout and highlight reel finishes Bellator has become known for. Bellator 60 will be the first event broadcast on mun2, and will feature an epic Featherweight World Championship fight between Pat Curran and Joe Warren that left the Bellator crowd on its feet.
Additionally, a collection of Featherweight Tournament Quarterfinals fights will be shown with the winner of the Season 6 Tournament earning a guaranteed title shot and a $100,000 payday. With a number of dynamic finishes and impressive performances, Bellator 60 will be an explosive start to new mun2 alliance. From now on every Live Bellator event in 2012 and 2013 will be seen live in mun2 in Spanish language.
