SHAME SMITH IS LEAVING BELLATOR

With Bellator entering Season 4 of their existence they were making plenty of changes in their production areas. MTV 2 was their pick for a 3 year deal to broadcast their shows and seemed like a great choice for the company. The next question many have asked was about the broadcasting crew of Sean Wheelock and Jimmy Smith.

The only confirmation from Bellator was that Sean Wheelock would be back for the upcoming season and Jimmy Smith was still in negotiations to return. Jimmy then proceeded to announce on his twitter that a deal couldn't be worked out and he would not return to the company for the upcoming season. It seemed like a normal business type scenario were numbers couldn't be met and both went on their ways. I contacted Jimmy and Bellator regarding the contract discussion and this is what they had to say about the situation.
