The home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame also will play host to next month's Bellator 51 event.

Officials today announced that the Sept. 24 event will take place at Canton Memorial Civic Center in Canton, Ohio.

The MTV2-televised event features the opening round of the organization's season-five eight-man bantamweight tournament.

Ohio has hosted just one Bellator event to date: Bellator 5, which took place in 2009 at Dayton's Hara Arena.

Bellator 51's tournament matchups include Alexis Vila (9-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC) vs. Joe Warren (7-1 MMA, 5-0 BFC), Eduardo Dantas (10-2 MMA, 0-0 BFC) vs. Joe Soto (9-1 MMA, 4-1 BFC), Luiz Nogueira (11-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) vs. Ed West (16-5 MMA, 2-1 BFC), and Chase Beebe (18-7 MMA, 1-0 BFC) vs. Marcos Galvao (9-4-1 MMA, 0-1 BFC). The four fights comprise the night's televised main card.

Preliminary-card fights will be booked in conjunction with the NAAFS, Ohio's biggest MMA promotion.

"Canton is a city that truly appreciates champions," Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney stated. "Growing up a football fan and playing my college football in the great state of Ohio, I can definitely appreciate a football city. It's an honor to bring the fastest-rising sport and world-class fighters to a great city such as Canton."

Canton is located about 25 miles south of Akron.

Can't wait for this, this weekend is such a good one for MMA - first possibly the first time there's UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator and Dream on the same weekend.

Every fight is so close and could go either way.

Vila-Warren
These are like mirror images of each other, with one a bit younger than the other. Warren's last 3 have all been close - Freire fight was split, Soto destroyed him that first round, and Galvao should have been awarded the decision. I havn't seen much iof Vila, but he's an olympic medalist who is 9-0 and never been to a decision. I just think the edge will be the cardio of Warren - i can see Vila getting success early on by Warren fighting back to get a decision. Warren Unanimous Decision

Dantas-Reis
Mr semi-final meets the prospect Dantas. Dantas is a beast, only dude he's lost to is Ueda, i really rate him. I like Reis too, and wouldn't be too suprised if he won a decision using his top control, but i think Dantas is just the better quality fighter, and think he'll win the decision. Dantas Unanimous Decision

Nogueira-West
Another really good fight which could go either way. I actually like West to get the upset here though. Nogeuria is a great prospect like Dantas, but West is a guy i like, he has good submissions and good wrestling, and i can see him holding Nogueira downj for much of the 3 rounds to get a decision. West Unanimous Decision

Galvao v Beebe
I've never really been impressed with Galvao except his 'loss' against Warren, where he looked great. Beebe is a confidence fighter - when he's on a roll he's hard to stop. He is now - having won 7 of 8, so i fully expect him to finish Galvao within the distance. Beebe 1st round Submission

Great KO, but Warren was clearly out cold so there was no need for Vila to start pounding on him. Maybe it will shut up Warren though!!

Some good fights, Dantas KO was sick too.

Vila, Dantas, West and Galvao left. Anyone of them 4 could win, you've gotta go with Vila after last night though.

Vila has an interesting story behind him. And his KO power is very impressive - that man can punch.


PS: just noticed Vila is 40 years old!

Vila surprised me.

As a 40 year old who started competing less than 4 years ago with 9 wins against lower level fightesr, and has a smaller frame than Warren. I'm really impressed.
