Earlier today we learned that Viacom was taking their MMA company serious for once, and as a result they got rid of their plague of bad executives.
A top the termination list was company founder, Bjorn Rebney.
The MMA world reacted:

Viacom/Spike/Bellator bringing Scott Coker on to run things would be the wisest choice they could make. Now lose the Bellator name.
