Guillaume DeLorenzi is currently on a five-fight win streak, dating back to September of 2009. During the streak, he holds TKO victories over Ryan Machan and UFC-veteran Dale Hartt. Most recently, DeLorenzi earned a spot in this year’s tournament with a first round submission win over Jonny Carson at Bellator 79.

Patricky Friere was involved in one of this year’s most exciting rounds of MMA with Eddie Alvarez, in a fight that saw both fighters hurt on several occasions. Eventually, it was Alvarez earning a spectacular head kick knockout with only seconds remaining in the first round. Freire was eliminated in season six’s lightweight tournament quarterfinals after being submitted in the second round by Lloyd Woodward.

Thiago Michel Silva was eliminated in season six’s lightweight tournament in the semifinals after losing a razor-thin split decision to Brent Weedman. He defeated Rene Nazare in the opening round via split decision. Most recently, Michel took a fight on a regional Brazilian card, defeating David Gardner with a second round TKO finish.

Alexander Sarnavskiy suffered his first professional loss in the opening round of season six’s lightweight tournament with a split decision loss to Rich Clementi at Bellator 77. He recently rebounded nicely with a dominant unanimous decision victory over Tony Hervey in November.
