Video: Dana White reacts to Bellator shake up, calls Scott Coker 'better fit' for Spike TV than 'Bjork' Rebney

White makes sure to get one last shot in as "Bjork" cleans out his desk.

"Not only do I know Scott (Coker) very well, I know the guys at Spike very well. I was in business with them for a long time and I think this is a much better fit for them than Bjork was."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White stopped short of wishing them well, but did seem to think that former Strikerorce CEO Scott Coker will feel right at home with the boys at Spike TV, now that Bjorn Rebney has been ousted from the top spot in Bellator MMA. UFC cut its teeth on the Viacom-owned network while trying to get The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) off the ground, right around the same time Coker was breaking mixed martial arts (MMA) attendance records in San Jose. Look how far we've come in five years! Now just imagine where we'll be in another five. For more news and notes on Rebney, Coker, and White, click here.
