Approximately one week before Bellator Fighting Championships will head to Rama, Ontario for its latest event, the promotion has announced that featherweight prospect Alexandre Bezerra will fight UFC vet Douglas Evans at the November 12th card.
Bezerra (11-1) is coming off a second round, stoppage win over Scott Heckman in September, to extend the BJJ brown belt’s Bellator record to 3-0.
Evans (13-9) will be looking to end a two fight losing streak, as the Alaska native has dropped back-to-back bouts to Alexander Sarnavskiy and more recently Antonio Carvalho.
Several other preliminary bouts have been confirmed for the upcoming, November 12th, Bellator 57 card, as Denis Puric will take on bantamweight Chuck Mady, lightweight Josh Shockley will face Eric Moon, Mike Sledzion will meet lightweight Taylor Solomon, and light-heavyweight Matt Van Buren will fight Shawn Levesque.
Bellator 57 will feature the finals of the promotion’s welterweight tourney, as Ben Saunders will fight Douglas Lima, as well as its middleweight tournament finale, which will see Alexander Shlemenko battle Vitor Vianna.
The card will be hosted by the Casino Rama and will be broadcast live on MTV 2.
