The Bellator Fighting Championships 57 fight bill continues to develop, as the promotion on Thursday announced plans to return to Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Canada on Nov. 12.

As previously reported by Sherdog.com, a women’s 125-pound catchweight bout between reigning 115-pound champion Zoila Gurgel and Carina Damm is slated for the event, as is the ongoing Season 5 welterweight tournament final. Bellator also announced a brand new matchup for the show on Thursday, as Roger Hollett (Pictured, File Photo) will lock horns with John Hawk in a light heavyweight affair. It is currently unknown if the pairing will be featured on the main draw broadcast on MTV2 and EPIX or if it will be streamed live as part of the preliminary card on Spike.com.

Currently in the beginning stages of its fifth season, Bellator visited Canada during its Summer Series on July 23. That event also emanated from Casino Rama, showcasing the semifinals of the Chicago-based promotion’s most recent featherweight tournament, which was eventually won by Pat Curran.
