Strikeforce veteran, Herman Terrado carries a current seven-fight win streak with him into his Bellator debut, all seven victories coming by way of stoppages. He went 2-0 in Strikeforce, earning a knockout victory over current Bellator fighter, AJ Matthews and a third round submission win over Chris Brown.

Season six’s tournament winner, Rick Hawn came up short on claiming the Bellator lightweight title in January, suffering a second round submission loss to Michael Chandler at Bellator 85. He later returned to the welterweight division in April and defeated UFC-veteran Karo Parisyan in the second round by knockout.

Luis “Sergio Junior” Melo made his Bellator debut in March, submitting Trey Houston in the third round at Bellator 94. The win extended his current win streak to six, including five stoppage victories (2 TKO/KO, 3 Submission).

Ron Keslar earns a late notice spot in this year’s tournament on the heels of a four-fight win streak. His past two victories in the cage have come against Ultimate Fighter veterans James Chaney and Dom Waters. Keslar fought under the Strikeforce banner three times, going 1-2, with a first round submission victory over Eric Lawson.
