Bellator

Bellator Fighting Championships is the largest tournament-based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion in the world. The promotion prides itself on the slogan, “Where Title Shots are Earned, Not Given.” In order to gain the distinction of champion, a fighter must defeat the entire tournament field, making a Bellator title belt, one of the hardest honors to earn in sports. Since its launch in 2009, Bellator has crowned champions in eight different divisions, including one women’s division. Everlast is proud to be the official equipment and glove sponsor for Bellator.

Founded in 2008 in Chicago by Chairman and CEO, Bjorn Rebney, Bellator recently moved to a new home in Newport Beach, CA. In 2011 Bellator formed a partnership with Viacom, wherein Viacom bought a majority stake in the promotion. As of January 2013, Bellator now airs all live content on the television home of MMA, Spike TV.
