Quote:
A middleweight bout between Karl Amoussou (11-3-2 MMA, 0-0 BFC) and fast-rising Sam Alvey (14-2 MMA, 0-0 BFC) has been added to next month's Bellator 45 event, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with a source close to the show.

Bellator 45 takes place at L'Auberge du Lac Casino Resort in Lake Charles, La.

The night's main card airs on MTV2, and Amoussou vs. Alvey could be part of the broadcast.

Amoussou previously competed for major organizations such as M-1 Global, Strikeforce and DREAM. The French fighter and judo black belt hasn't fought since July 2010, when he suffered a decision loss to Kazuhiro Nakamura at DREAM.15. Prior to that, he fought Trevor Prangley to a technical draw at Strikeforce Challengers 6 when an accidental eyepoke left Amoussou unable to continue.

Alvey, a King of the Cage veteran, also makes his Bellator debut at the show. The Wisconsin-based fighter is 10-1 since mid-2009, which included a 7-1 mark in during a busy 2010 fight schedule. He's a former college wrestler and Pankration competitor who made his pro MMA debut in 2008.

In addition to Amoussou vs. Alvey, Bellator 45 features the organization's season-four light-heavyweight (Richard Hale vs. Christian M'Pumbu) and featherweight (Patricio Freire vs. Daniel Straus) tourney finales.

If this was in Louisiana then I'd go. There needs to be a Bellator card in Southern California. I would definately go to that one.

Hale's gonna walk all over M'Pumbu, can see him winning it in the 1st round. M'Pumbu needs to drop a weightclass and enter the middleweight tournament, he could be a force there.

I'm hoping Freire gets another dominant win as i think the rematch between him and Warren would be great. However, Straus is very underrated, and i wouldnt be suprised if Straus decisioned Freire with his takeodwns and top game.

Santos v Markham is a fun fight, sort of expecting Rory not to make weight, but if he does i can see Santos smashing him on the feet.

Amoussou is a good signing for bellator, but this is a poor style match up for him and Alvey is very underrated, but i think Amoussou will get a famous bellator split decision.

I'm excited to see Thiago Santos' debut in USA, he's a big dude with heavy hands, might be a dark horse in the next heavyweight tourney. Never heard of the dude he's fighting though.

Overall a good card with some good fights on.

Mp Picks:
Hale by 2nd round TKO
Freire by Decision
L.Santos by 1st round KO
Amoussou by Split Decision
T.Santos by 1st round KO

Well it is possible that M'Pumbu entered at lightheavyweight cause that was the only oppurtunity to do so. He can move to middleweight if he doesn't win this. That is the advantage of Bellator and it's tournament schedule.

This fight was added to the card:

Quote:
One of MMA's most prolific prospects, Luis "Sapo" Santos (48-6 MMA, 0-0 BFC) will make his big-show debut at Bellator 45 against judoka Nicolae Cury (4-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC).

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned that both fighters have agreed to the contest, and bout agreements are expected to be finalized soon.

Featuring a pair of season-four tournament finals, Bellator 45 takes place at L'Auberge du Lac Casino Resort in Lake Charles, La.

As with all of Bellator's season-four events, Bellator 45 airs on MTV2.

Santos, a Finney's MMA product carries a seven-fight win streak into the machup and has won 11 of his past 12 bouts. Fighting professionally since 2000, Santos has 54 documented contests and 36 stoppage wins.

In 2008, Santos was given a one-fight look by the WEC, but a loss to Alex Serdyukov on the WEC 34 prelims sent "Sapo" back to the Brazilian regional circuit.

A black belt in both Brazilian jiu-jitsu and judo, Cury is the lead judo instructor for American Top Team's flagship camp in Coconut Creek, Fla.

Cury made his professional debut with a submission win over Jorge Nouchat at the October 2008 "Elite XC: Heat" event that saw Seth Petruzelli knock out Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson. He then went on to fight three times under the Florida-based Art of Fighting promotion before his most recent outing, a decision win over Frank Carrillo for RadRok MMA Championship.

I wouldnt call someone with 54 pro fights a prospect! Shame they pulled Markham from the fight with him, they seem to be pulling loads of fighters like a week before the show lately.
