Marcos Galvao left a good impression in his Bellator 41 loss to Joe Warren. Now the New York City-based fighter returns this Saturday at Bellator 51, and he's 10 pounds lighter.

Galvao, who trains with Nova Uniao, will face former WEC champion Chase Beebe in first round of Bellator's Season 5 bantamweight tournament in Canton, Ohio. Galvao (9-4) has also fought in the WEC and Ring of Combat and is a two-time world champion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Bellator 51 will air live on MTV2 this Saturday at 9 p.m. and repeats immediately afterward at 11.
