SMITH WILL RETURN!

Despite previous reports that Jimmy Smith would not serve as a part of Bellator Fighting Championships' upcoming fourth season, the veteran color commentator will indeed return to the broadcast booth.

Bellator officials today announced that Smith will again serve alongside play-by-play man Sean Wheelock for this season's MTV2 broadcasts.

"With their wealth of experience, knowledge of the game and excitement for MMA, I truly believe that we have the best broadcast team in the sport," Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney stated in the official release.

The rumours are that the pair will be wearing custom made MMA clothing to add a sense of spectacle to the occasion - it should be amazing!
