Bellator booked two bouts for the upcoming welterweight-tourney semifinals.
Four veteran MMA fighters have just been added to Bellator 53 — the event which will host the second round of the promotion’s Season 5 Welterweight Tournament. Following the Bellator 49 show that took place in New Jersey last Saturday, Bellator CEO – Bjorn Rebney – confirmed that there would be two bouts slated for the upcoming welterweight-tourney semifinals.
Ben Saunders (11-3-2 MMA, 2-0 BFC) will be meeting Luis Santos (50-6-1 MMA, 2-0 BFC) on the said event, and so as Chris Lozano (9-1 MMA, 2-1 BFC) and Douglas Lima (19-4 MMA, 1-0 BFC). Bellator 53 will be held on October 8, 2011. However, both the location and venue haven’t been finalized yet.
The winners of the two bouts will be scheduled to meet on a future match-up, which will determine who among them is this season’s welterweight tournament champion. The declared champ will then face either current welterweight champion, Ben Askren or Jay Hieron.
