An already impressive Bellator 58 just got a little more stacked as the promotion's season-five middleweight tournament bout will also be contested on the card.

Bellator officials announced that Bellator 54 semifinal bout winners Alexander Shlemenko (42-7 MMA, 6-1 BFC) and Vitor Vianna (12-1-1 MMA, 2-0 BFC) will meet at the Nov. 19 event.

Already featuring a lightweight title fight between Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler, as well as a non-title fight with champ Hector Lombard and Trevor Prangley, Bellator 58 takes place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

The evening's main card airs on MTV2 while the prelims stream on Spike.com.

For sure. Vianna really surprised me last night. I thought for sure Baker was going to win. He looked like he was underestimating Vianna a little bit and then got lit up for his trouples.

Shlemenko vs Rogers was an awesome fight and both guys looked really impressive at certain points in the fight. Those knees that finished Rogers were brutal.

I picked Baker also, but I wasn't very confident

Vianna was really impressive, has shown much improved striking...we all know he has a great BJJ background. I'm really looking forward to to this one, but not sure he can beat such a dynamic striker like Alex.
