Tonight's televised card features four bouts:
Hector Lombard is the current Bellator middleweight champ, but tonight's main event with Falaniko Vitale is a non-title affair. Patricky Freire and Michael Chandler meet in the finals of the season four lightweight tournament. The winner earns the right to fight current champion Eddie Alvarez. Bellator cancelled a fourth bout between Anthony Morrison and Bryan Goldsby after Morrison failed to make weight.
