Saturday's Bellator 53 main card has a late addition.

With heavyweight-tournament semifinalist Mike Hayes potentially facing a scratch due to a medical suspension, officials have booked a tourney-reserve bout between Thiago Santos (8-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) and Josh Burns (6-4 MMA, 0-1 BFC).

The winner gets the tourney spot if Hayes isn't cleared to continue.

Bellator 53 takes place at Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Okla. The night's main card airs on MTV2 (and in high-definition on EPIX), and the preliminary card streams on Spike.com.

To make room on Saturday's main card, a Darryl Cobb (5-3 MMA, 0-0 BFC) vs. Giva Santana (16-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) middleweight bout has been demoted to the prelims, Bellator officials today confirmed to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). However, the bout gets first dibs on any available TV time if the main-card action ends early.
