Bellator 66 achieving “can’t miss” status with five fights on main card

When Bellator heads to Cleveland next month for Bellator 66 the main card will be stacked full of past champions and hopeful contenders.

Along with the headlining rematch between Shinya Aoki and former lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez, the show will also feature action from the final four fighters remaining in the Season 6 Lightweight Tournament and middleweight semifinals as well. Specifically, that means the super-sized main card will feature fights between Rick Hawn-Lloyd Woodard, Thiago Michel-Brent Weedman, Brian Rogers-Bruno Santos, and Maiquel Falcao-Vyacheslav Vasilevsky.

Hawn, Woodard, and Weedman all earned their spots by finishing their first-round opponents off last week at Bellator 62 while Michel narrowly outpointed veteran Rene Nazare to advance. Comparably, Rogers also blasted his adversary into unconsciousness when he fought at Bellator 61 with his remaining middleweight peers earning Unanimous Decisions in their respective rumbles.

Bellator 66 takes place April 20 from the I-X Center.

    ah man this could be good, other than the Eddie/Aoki bout Hawn/Woodard could be an entertaining scrap. Thiago is an awesome kickboxer and brent weedman does have a habit of getting drawn into stand up fights even tho he is looking real slick on the ground. wasnt impressed with Santos too much but Rogers is a beast, should make it a fun fight. Vasilevsky is your typical russian fighter, good kickboxer, good on the ground, while Falcao is a bit fucking crazy.
    gonna be a dope night of fights

    Alvarez got a lot on the line here… another loss drops his stock big time. This is his last contracted fight with BFC right? Gotta up the ante here and get an impressive win.
