April 16, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) – UB.net’s exclusive sponsorship of Bellator Fighting Championships, the nationally televised mixed martial arts (“MMA”) phenomenon, has announced two new regional freerolls that will see the leading online poker site give away VIP High Roller packages to their players located in select New England States, and parts of South-Central United States before the end of the month.

UB.net introduced the special weekly Bellator freerolls late last month, with the two new freerolls released recently providing the opportunity to residents in several new regions to get involved in the  Thursday evening tournament series; the winner of each of these free-play No Limit Hold ‘em tournaments will front up cage-side at a designated upcoming Bellator fight night during the 2010 season. The VIP Bellator prize package includes two cage-side seats, pre/post event photos in the cage, official Bellator and UB swag, plus $300 cash for travel expenses.

Added to the schedule is UB.net’s April 22nd Bellator freeroll at 20:00 ET, exclusive to players in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire; the winner will receive the VIP prize package, including a pair of cage-side seats at the May 6th Bellator event at the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre in Boston.

The following week, the Bellator freeroll on Thursday, April 29th at 20:00 ET means players in Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi can get in on the action too. This free to enter tournament is  awarding a VIP prize package to attend the Bellator event at the Monroe Civic Center in Louisiana on May 13th.

UB player Jason “JAYOWNZYOU” Lucie from Florida won UB’s first VIP prize package to attend the Bellator event at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida on April 8th.

“It was an experience that most MMA fans can only dream of.  Backstage pre-fight, and at the end inside the cage, we got to take pictures with the fighters…not many fans get to do that! Overall, we had a great time, saw some entertaining fights, and walked away with some awesome memories,” enthused Jason.

Further details of UB’s Bellator freeroll line-up will be announced as their fight schedule is confirmed. Players should check the UB.net site regularly for new freeroll listings under the ‘Specials’ Tab in the UB tournament lobby, to discover when there’s a Bellator event coming to a venue nearby, and a corresponding regional Bellator freeroll that they qualify for.

Each of Bellator’s events throughout Season 2 will be distributed in primetime on Thursday nights on FOX Sports Net and its regional sports network affiliates. The top moments from each week’s live events will then be condensed into an action-packed 30-minute highlight show, broadcast every Saturday night, late night, on NBC. A one-hour highlight show will air in Spanish on Telemundo every Saturday night from midnight to 1 a.m.
