Norman Paraisy confirmed as the final middleweight addition.

The match-ups also announced - Santana v Santos, Vasilevsky v O'Donnell, Viana v Rogers & Falcao v Paraisy

I fancy Santos, Vasilevsky, Rogers and Falcao to make it through.

And so the puzzle peaces are falling into place. Should be good.

You're slackin'.

Bellator 61, March 16th in Louisiana:

- Big Monster Santos vs. Eric Prindle (Season 5 HW Tourney Redo)
Plus the MW Quarterfinal match-ups

Additional Notes:

- The rumored Eddie Alvarez vs. Shinya Aoki match is all but set for April. It will likely take place under the Bellator banner.

- Shamar Bailey's opponent in a non-tournament bout at Bellator 60 will be 8-1 Josh Shockley (excellent fight for a prelim, I think Shockley will snatch that neck or win on strikes).

- Bellator will be back in Canada, where they've enjoyed there most success from an attendance standpoint, on April the 6th, this time in Windsor, Ontario.

- Bellator has also applied for a Nevada license. It couldn't hurt to try out Vegas. There's always people there with free time, looking for something to do, and a way to spend their money. If Bellator ever moves midweek like some have suggested, then Vegas being a regular destination is almost a necessity unless they want to get killed at the gate.

I'm loving the first 2 Bellator cards of the season, 5 great fights each card, and some decent prelims announced too, though the UFC rejects with fights (McCorkle, Bailey) aren't great. Madsen is a better signing, i think he could even go all the way in the next heavyweight tourney, depending on the participants.

Well so far all the UFC rejects that went into Bellator haven't impressed me. Most of them have lost in their debuts. However, I agree that Madsen could very well be the exception though.

Madsen is better than the average UFC reject in Bellator for sure, and HW is their 2nd weakest division, but I think Ivanov is too well-rounded for him. Madsen might be 2nd best though, depending on who loses between Santos and Prindle, and who else they sign between now and when the tournament is held. It better be quick because Konrad is getting screwed by under-use. They should have done a special card between seasons to determine a challenger, and now that they didn't, give him a super-fight w/ someone like Tony Lopez. But I'm betting they just wait until a title challenger is ready. Best case scenario, IMO, is that Big Monster makes quick work of Prindle, and they could have Konrad defend in late April.

Heavyweight is which promotion's second weakest division? If it's Bellator then that makes sense because bantemweight probably comes next. As for the superfight though I think Bellator is staying away from that from now on.

Hey guys, you surely have heard, that Bellator have signed bloodyelbow.com #1 welterweight prospect Andrey Koreshkov, who trains under the guidance of Shlemenko!

Man this guy is sick, his striking is just crazy, and his ground-game is very good as well, just check his fights out on youtube!
Or just watch his promo for Bellator:

Brian Foster vs War Machine would be a great fight.
