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.

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.
