via www.bellator.com

CHICAGO, Ill. (January 30, 2011) - In a continuing effort to bring premier sports and entertainment to those who serve in the United States Armed Forces, Bellator Fighting Championships has once again partnered with the Armed Forces Network, extending a relationship that was formed in 2010.

For the approximately one million service members and their families deployed to 175 countries around the world that depend on AFN, Bellator's sixth season and beyond will be able to be seen via the Armed Forces Network, including Bellator's March 9 premier from The Venue at The Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana.

Tickets for this event are on sale and are available at The Horseshoe Casino, Ticketmaster, www.thevenue-chicago.com, or by calling 1-800-745-3000.

"It is an honor for us to be able to continue to provide Bellator programming to the men and women of The United States Armed Forces," Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney said. "The strength and courage displayed by the men and women of our armed forces is admirable at the highest level. To be able to give back to them, even a little bit is something I am pleased we can do."

With over 10 years of service in the United States Army, Bellator Heavyweight Tournament Finalist Eric Prindle is well aware of the importance of the AFN.

"When you are stationed overseas, being able to sit down and watch sports or a big fight like Bellator brings back a piece a home, and allows you to keep doing your job," Prindle said. "It's a tremendous honor to know I've got the soldiers watching me fight, and I can promise in my rematch with Thiago Santos, I won't let them down."
