Bellator World Grand Prix Kicks Off With Sonnen-Jackson Bout
Bellator's World Grand Prix kicks off Saturday at The Forum with an "eclectic collection of eight competitors," highlighted by Chael Sonnen-Rampage Jackson in Bellator 192 (USA TODAY, 1/19). Jackson-Sonnen is the "opening bout of the eight-fighter tournament that will continue at later dates." The new Paramount Network (formerly Spike TV) "will televise the card." The Forum is "close to being sold out" (L.A. TIMES, 1/18).
