Randy Couture signs deal with Spike TV for Bellator reality series

This season’s Ultimate Fighter featuring Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen has so far proved to be entertaining. Episode 2 aired Tuesday night, and featured the first quarterfinal matchup and the first fight since the 16 contenders for the TUF 17 entered the house.

Gilbert Smith of team Jones squared off against Luke Barnatt of team Sonnen. Many were puzzled by Jones choosing to put his number four pick up against the number one pick of Sonnen, including some of Smith’s teammates. In any case everybody’s doubts were correct when Barnatt scored a late KO of Smith in the second round of their match. Until that point, the fight was pretty much a draw, which can also raise the question, just how good is Sonnens number one pick. In any case Team Sonnen now has the advantage. On next week’s episode Chael Sonnen went with his No. 2 pick Uriah Hall to matchup against Team Jones’ No. 6 pick Adam Cella.

In other new UFC Hall of Famer Randy “The Natural” Couture inked a mutil- year deal with Spike TV according to several media outlets. Couture will be a part of Bellators new reality based series that will be aired on Spike TV to fill the void for the departing TUF, Dana White obviously wasn’t happy about the decision. However, he was happy about Nick Diaz’s behavior in Montreal to promote his upcoming bout with GSP at UFC 158. White said Diaz, was cooperative, and even hung around to sign autographs for the fans.
