Bellator Fighting Championships’ fifth-season heavyweight tournament final and three new undercard additions are on tap for Bellator 59, Sherdog.com confirmed with a source close to the event on Tuesday.

Preliminary bouts pitting LeVon Maynard (Pictured) against Christopher Wing at welterweight, Azunna Anyanwu against Randy Smith at heavyweight, and Gregory Milliard against Brandon Saling at middleweight are being targeted for the Nov. 26 event, which will emanate from Caesars Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.

Bellator’s heavyweight final pairing has yet to be decided, as four men still vie for a shot at champion Cole Konrad. The heavyweight tournament semifinals will go down this Saturday at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan., where Eric Prindle will lock horns with Ron Sparks and Neil Grove will square off with Thiago Santos.

Only one bout has been officially announced by the promotion for Bellator 59’s main card: a welterweight tournament qualifier between Lyman Good and Michael Costa. However, the final of the Season 5 bantamweight tournament is also expected to highlight the MTV2 broadcast. The preliminary card will stream live on Spike.com.

Maynard has lost three of his last four. The 28-year-old Virginian has come up short in both of his Bellator appearances to date, falling by technical knockout to Rick Hawn and Giedrus Karavackas.

Only 23 years old, Wing will make his Bellator debut at the event. The former Ring of Combat talent recently rebounded from his only career loss to outpoint Jason Lee on Sept. 30.

Unbeaten in his four pro outings, Anyanwu has finished each of his career victims by either knockout or submission. “Zulu” made a successful Bellator debut on Sept. 10, knocking out J.A. Dudley in the second round of their Bellator 49 clash.

Smith rides back-to-back victories into his sophomore Bellator appearance. The New Yorker was bested by Jamall Johnson in his first appearance for the Chicago-based promotion, submitting to a rear-naked choke on May 14.

Milliard has just three pro fights to his credit and has fallen in his two most recent outings. After over two years away from the cage, the Aruba native was signed by Bellator following his effort at July’s open tryouts in Florida.

A winner of three straight fights, Saling began his pro career in February, fighting 10 times thus far in 2011. Fighting out of Cumberland, Ohio, the 25-year-old owns all six of his career wins by knockout or submission.
