Bellator 54 Gets Two Additional Fights


Bellator officials have added two new fights to the Bellator 54 roster set for October 15.

The two new bouts give the show currently nine fights with a few more additions likely to take place before the card is full.

Jacob Kirwan vs. Rene Nazare and Brian Kellehere vs. Claudio Ledesma are now official for the evening’s preliminary portion of the card.

Bellator 54 is set to take place from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. on October 15 and will feature the season-five middleweight tournament semifinals as well as a non title affair between bantamweight champ, Sach Makovsky and Ryan Roberts.

Kirwan will make his promotional debut after only winning one of his last three professional MMA fights. He faces Nazare, a three-fight Bellator veteran who brings his undefeated record into the match.

Kelleher is currently riding a four-fight win-streak and boasts an overall record of 4-1 in professional action. All of his wins have come via some form of stoppage. He will now face Ledesma who is coming off of a loss to Aljamain Sterling under the Ring of Combat promotion.
