Rick Hawn earned a tournament finale spot for the third time with an unanimous decision victory over Brent Weedman in the semifinals. Since falling short against Michael Chandler in a lightweight title bout at Bellator 85, Hawn is on a three-fight win streak since returning as a welterweight. 

Ron Keslar upset War Machine at Bellator 104 to earn the other spot in the welterweight tournament finale, dominating from start-to-finish en route to a first round submission win. The former Strikeforce veteran is now on a six-fight win streak, including wins over James Chaney, Dom Waters, and Luis Melo Jr. 

Russian standout, Alexander Sarnavskiy hasn’t had to work to hard to make it to the lightweight finale, submitting both Marcus Davis and Ricardo Tirloni both early in the first round. In October 2012, Sarnavisky lost a split decision to Rich Clementi in the quarterfinals of season seven’s tournament, but has since won five straight fights.

Will Brooks avenged his only career loss with a dominant unanimous decision victory over Saad Awad to advance to the 155-pound finale. Brooks was knocked out by Awad in the semifinals of season eight’s tournament.
