Brian Rogers (8-3 MMA, 1-1 BFC) is the first entrant in Bellator's upcoming season-six middleweight tournament.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the onetime Strikeforce fighter's involvement with a source to the promotion.

The eight-man tournament kicks off in March and airs on MTV2.

Rogers, a 27-year-old Ohioan, also competed in Bellator's season-five tournament and scored a vicious first-round knockout win (due to a head kick and punches) over Victor O'Donnell in the tournament's opening round. However, he then suffered a TKO loss to eventual tourney champion Alexander Shlemenko in the semifinals.

The TKO loss marked the first time Rogers was stopped in a pro fight. It also snapped his impressive seven-fight win streak that included seven knockout wins.
