Former Bellator MMA head cheese Bjorn Rebney, ousted back in 2014 in favor of combat sports darling Scott Coker, will make his triumphant return to mixed martial arts (MMA) this afternoon (Weds., Nov. 30, 2016) with a star-stuffed media conference call.
MMAmania.com will provide LIVE, real-time updates of today’s “redefining announcement” beginning at 4 p.m. ET below.
Joining Rebney on today’s call will be former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, along with former UFC champions Cain Velasquez (heavyweight) and T.J. Dillashaw (bantamweight), as well as well-known UFC fighters Donald Cerrone and Tim Kennedy.
That’s quite the line up.
While the nature of today’s call has yet to be revealed, the cat has already started to peek its way out of the bag. Rebney recently reregistered website domains that would suggest the formation — or backing — of an MMA fighter union (details), one of the hottest topics over the past several years.
We’ll know soon enough.
