New TNA TV Deal?, Spike Countering Eddie Alvarez UFC Debut With Eddie Alvarez, King Mo's Next

- Bellator light heavyweight and sometimes TNA Superstar King Mo will face Tom DeBlass at Bellator 131 live on Spike TV on Saturday, November 15th from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California. The night will also feature UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz face fellow UFC Hall of Famer Stephan Bonnar in a light heavyweight affair, while Will Brooks and Michael Chandler will battle for the vacant Bellator Lightweight Title.

"Tom has been talking since we were supposed to fight in September," Mo said. "He's a good fighter, but my jab is going to erase his teeth and swell up his eyes. My right is going to make him see stars and bright lights. Another fight, another win."

- F4WOnline recently reported that TNA may announce a new TV deal this week. As noted earlier, there are reportedly four networks interested in picking up TNA, including WGN America and Velocity. Spike TV is not one of the four.

- Speaking of Spike TV, they will be counter programming former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez's UFC debut this Saturday at UFC 178 with an evening of Alvarez's Bellator fights against Michael Chandler at 10:00pm ET/PT. The 90-minute Eddie Alvarez: Free on Spike special will kick-off with his first bout with Chandler at Bellator 58, regarded by many as the "Fight of The Year" in 2011. The night of free Eddie Alvarez then continues with his rematch with Chandler from Bellator 106 from November, 2013 where Eddie regained the title in a controversial 5-round decision.
