Fishman was a big part of Impact/TNA's run early on with Spike, but the channel will be switching to "Paramount Channel" next year. This has many within Bellator worried that Viacom's perception of MMA may change and that they'll no longer "fit the portfolio" of the network, despite an internal memo that states they will. 

Impact will return to Spike in the UK next month, but the company is looking to get on a paying station as opposed to the barter deal they have in place on Pop TV. Also, the show doesn't have HD coverage in many markets, something has been told is important to Impact.
