Alexis Vila and Eduardo Dantas each earned a spot in the finals of the Season 5 Bantamweight Tournament with victories at Bellator 55. Vila earned a decision over Marcos Galvao while Dantas outpointed Ed West. The finals will take place at Bellator 59 on November 26th in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney stated, “I cannot wait to see this bantamweight final. Alexis Vila, an Olympic wrestler with dynamite in his hands, is a 40-year-old world-class athlete that is just now hitting his peak. Then you have a 22-year-old buzzsaw Eduardo Dantas, who is the top Bantamweight prospect in the world. It was a great night of fights at Cocopah and I expect a great final next month.”
