Anthony Leone has had a career resurgence in his return to Bellator, winning his last three fights against tough opposition. Leone returned in May of last year and won a split decision victory over Claudio Ledesma. He then was supposed to be a tune-up fight for former Bellator bantamweight champion, Zach Makovsky, but Leone foiled those plans earning another decision. In the semifinals of this year’s Summer Series tournament, Leone submitted former King of the Cage champion, Frank Baca, in the third round at Bellator 97.

High;y-touted Brazilian bantamweight prospect, Rafael Silva made his stateside debut in the quarterfinals of this year’s Summer Series tourney, submitting Rodrigo Lima in the third round with a rear naked choke. He’s now won twelve straight fights, ten of which that have come by stoppages.
