Former Bellator exec Bjorn Rebney comes out of hiding to mourn loss of friend

It has been more than a year and a half since the former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Bellator MMA, Bjorn Rebney sent a tweet.

The former frontman for the second largest mixed martial arts organization in the country was an avid tweeter when he was in front of the cameras.

Rebney’s last tweet came June 29, 2014 when he simply wrote “Mexico” after being relieved from his position with Bellator MMA. On June 18, 2014, it was announced by Viacom, the parent company of the organization that Rebney has parted ways with the company.  Rebney would be replaced by former Strikeforce executive, Scott Coker.

Then, yesterday Rebney came out of hiding to mourn the loss of a friend.

While Rebney still has not publicly addressed his location or what he is doing, at least we know he is still alive and has not completely fell off the face of the planet.  #WheresBjorn
