The world's number-two mixed martial arts promotion is taking its show on the road.

Via release, Bellator announced Tuesday morning it will host three international events in 2016. The organization has staged events events outside of the U.S., all of them in Canada, but never beyond those two countries. The Sports Business Journal was the first to report the story.

The three places targeted for a show are London, England; Tel Aviv, Israel; and Italy. According to the release, the London event will air on Channel 5, which, like Bellator, is a Viacom property. Spike U.K. will also show the prelims for the London show live. The event's main card will air on Spike in the U.S. via tape delay. That card is set to be held at the O2 Arena.

Al Iaquinta will undergo knee surgery after all.

The lightweight out of Long Island's Serra-Longo gym wavered on whether to go under the knife ever since he was sidelined over the summer due to lingering right knee issues.

But MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani reported on Wednesday's edition of UFC Tonight that since the stem-cell injection treatments Iaqunita has received over the past couple months haven't done the trick, he'll go ahead and get the surgery done.

Iaquinta, who has what's been described as very little cartilage left in his knee, will have a cadaver's cartilage implanted behind his knee cap. He hopes to return to action in 6-8 months.
