UFC veteran, Diego Nunes makes his second appearance in a Bellator tournament, following a quarterfinal exit in season nine after a first round knockout loss to eventual tourney winner, Patricio Freire. He’s lost three out his last four fights, including a unanimous decision loss to Nik Lentz in January of last year to prompt his release from the UFC.

Matt Bessette enters his first tournament on the heels of a current four-fight win streak, including two victories under the Bellator banner. Most recently, he defeated Nick Piedmont via first round knockout at Bellator 98.

Mike Richman fell just short on a bid for a world title, falling to Magomedrasul Khasbulaev by unanimous decision in season eight’s featherweight tournament final last April. He returned to the win column in November with a first round TKO victory over Akop Stepanyan at Bellator 106.

Desmond Green earned his first victory in Bellator last October, stopping Angelo Sanchez in the second round via TKO.He made his debut in season nine’s 145-pound tournament, but was eliminated in the quarterfinal by Fabricio Guerreiro.
