Bjorn Rebney on Bellator 44 and what is next for season five

The Fight Nerd spoke with Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney after their debut in New Jersey at Bellator 44. We spoke about Hector Lombard’s fight against Falaniko Vitale, which was a lackluster performance that ended with a stunning knockout, and discussed Michael Chandler’s win over Patricky “Pitbull” Freire and if he has the tools to take on Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez. Rebney also discussed what will happen between Dan Hornbuckle and Lyman Good, who were expected to compete at this show for a spot in next season’s welterweight tournament, and get more details on what will happen in season five, including a potential women’s MMA tournament.
