Bellator FC is back with another semifinal round of Season 5 tournament action, this weekend presenting the final four in the remaining bantamweight field facing off for a spot in the final where one man will emerge with $100,000 and a title-shot.
Set to take place in Yuma, Arizona, Bellator 55 features Ed West facing Eduardo Dantas on one side of the bracket with Alexis Vila looking for another devastating knockout with Marcos Galvao doing his best to hold off the undefeated Olympian. The card will also feature light heavyweight champ Christian M’Pumbu taking on veteran Travis Wiuff in non-title action and the Bellator debut of former Ultimate Fighter winner Efrain Escudero.
Before the group gets it on in the ring they had to battle the scale first. Fortunately, all main card competitors made weight meaning the televised broadcast will go on as originally scheduled.
Things kick off live on MTV2/EPIX tomorrow night starting at 9:00 PM EST with preliminary pairings streaming through Spike.com a few hours earlier.
