Five fights have been added to the preliminary card of next month's Bellator 49 event.

The event takes place Sept. 10 at Caesars Atlantic City in New Jersey, and the night's main card – which exclusively features opening-round matchups for a season-five welterweight tournament – airs on MTV2.

In the featured prelim spot, featherweight Alexandre "Popo" Bezerra (10-1 MMA, 2-0 BFC) takes on Scott Heckman (7-2 MMA, 0-0 BFC).

A Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt training in the U.S. with Daddis Fight Camps, Bezerra was a member of the Brazilian national wrestling team and also has an extensive background in boxing. Bezerra's lone career loss came via submission in a September 2009 bout with current UFC contender Charles Oliveira.

The Pennsylvania-based Heckman has fought throughout the Northeast and won numerous titles while posting a 4-1 record in his past five fights. The former collegiate wrestler is a well-rounded fighter with solid jiu-jitsu skills.

Other preliminary-card bouts include featherweights Kenny Foster (9-3 MMA, 2-1 BFC) vs. Andy Main (5-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC), welterweights Giedrius Karavackas (5-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) vs. LeVon Maynard (11-7 MMA, 0-1 BFC), heavyweights Azunna Anyanwu (3-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC) vs. J.A. Dudley (4-7 MMA, 0-0 BFC), and featherweights Brylan Van Artsdalen (5-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) vs. Joel Roberts (4-3 MMA, 0-0 BFC).

This should be an interesting fight. I like to see Ben Saunders and Dan Hornbuckle in the finals. Then again I've been wrong before.

You can watch the undercard fights at Spike.com starting with this show:

Quote:
If you've been pining for Bellator undercard fights, you're in luck. Beginning with this Saturday's season five debut, Spike.com, Spike TV's Internet arm, will stream undercard fights from 7:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT, leading into the live broadcast on MTV2 and the HD simulcast on Epix.

Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney offered his thoughts on the deal in a press release:

"We are thrilled to join forces with Spike.com," said Rebney. "The Spike brand is synonymous with mixed martial arts worldwide and is another member of the MTV family, who does an incredible job in resonating with the hard-to-reach 18-to-34-year-old male audience."

The announcement further fuels the notion that Bellator will make a permanent move to Spike TV following their fifth season. The promotion signed a three-year agreement with MTV Networks (not directly with MTV2, which Rebney pointed out in this Sherdog interview) in December of 2010. With an opening left by the UFC's landmark deal with the Fox network, moving the fight promotion from MTV2, a network aimed at viewers in their teens and early twenties, to Spike TV, which wants to cater to male viewers aged 18-49, seems like an obvious choice.

Bellator 49 takes place this Saturday at Caesars Atlantic City in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Brent Weedman, Ben Saunders, and Dan Hornbuckle are featured participants in the opening round of a welterweight tournament.

There are a couple of decent fights here.

I think 2 of the quarters will be quite straightforward, with Saunders beating Cisneros by an early TKO, and Lima getting a 2nd or 3rd round submission of Carl.

The other 2 fights are more interesting. Hornbuckle v Santos is the most intriguing fight i think. Santos is 49-6 including a 9 fight unbeaten streak. I'd never heard of him before Bellator signed him, but he looked decent enough in a decision win over Cury, looked to have decent leg kicks. I think hornbuckle will be too much for him, and will get a late finish. Will be interesting to see how the Brazil vet does in America.

Weedman-Lozano is an intriguing fight too, both guys lost in season 4, Weedman looking more impressive. I think 3 outta 4 times Weedman wins this, but Lozano has dynamite in his fists which always makes it exciting.

So i've got Saunders, Lima, Hornbuckle and Weedman going through.

On the undercard, i'm excited to see Bezerra again, the guy looks a quality fighter. They've given him a tough fight though, Heckman is no pushover, but i can;t back against Bezerra.
Foster should beat Main comfortably; as should Karavackus against Maynard. I don't know anything about the other 4 prelim fighters.

This is a rather interesting development. Especially considering that Bjorn Rebney just said that the deal is with MTV network rather then MTV2 directly. I think this is a precursor to Bellator's move to Spike after this season.

I know these guys are going head to head with Strikeforce tonight and with UFC next week. That is a tough task there, but Bellator has at least held their own with the prelims. Every fight being finishes will do that I guess.

I think the fact that they have more fight cards going on in the next four months the UFC and Strikeforce combined offsets any low rating fight cards they may have.
