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.

Brent Weedman also competed in season six’s lightweight tournament, making it to the finals, but lost a hard-fought decision to Rick Hawn. He has now returned to the welterweight division, where he’s spent most of his career, and has won back-to-back fights over Marius Zaromskis and Justin Baesman.

War Machine advanced to the semifinals of this year’s welterweight tournament with a second round submission win over Vaughn Anderson at Bellator 100. He’s now won three straight fights, including a knockout wins over UFC-veteran Roger Huerta and WEC-veteran Blas Avena.

Former Strikeforce fighter, Ron Keslar returned to action after nearly a year and a half long lay-off to defeat Luis Melo Jr by split decision in the opening round of this year’s tourney.

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.
