04:56 PM ET 11.27 | Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney announced this week that rematches in title fights can happen without the challenger having to go through another tournament to earn that shot. "I am proud to announce that driven by your input, we will implement a championship fight rematch clause as we move into 2013 and our launch on Spike in January," Rebney stated. "When a fighter's earned a shot at the world title by winning the toughest tournament in sports and competes in a title fight that knocks fans like us back in our seats (win or lose) delivering an incredible fight, when a rematch is called for, we will deliver it. Championship fights give us some of the greatest moments in MMA. And, rematches of incredible championship fights will give fans like us more of those electrifying moments, while staying true to the world's best fighters having had to earn their way to those title shots."
