Bellator MMA & WinStar World Casino announced today a 2013 event hosting alliance that will see three of Bellator’s nationally and internationally televised events produced live from Oklahoma’s WinStar World Casino throughout 2013.
The partnership will begin with Bellator 86 which will be headlined by Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren defending his title against Karl Amoussou on Spike TV. Also, King Mo Lawal will make his Bellator debut against Przemyslaw Mysiala in a Bellator Light Heavyweight Tournament Quarterfinal fight.
“WinStar is one of the world’s most prestigious casino resort properties, and when the chance arose to bring Bellator to the Chickasaw Nation, the decision was a very easy one,” Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney said. “With the Bellator Welterweight World Title fight and the debut of King Mo, WinStar World Casino will host a huge night of fights on January 24th.”
Bellator events air live and free Thursday nights on Spike TV, as well as in Spanish language on mun2.
