Bellator 141: Guillard vs. Girtz will be held on August 28 at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California.

The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights competitor Wren lost quarter-finals to Roy Nelson via a controversial two round fight majority decision. After the reality show "The Viking" met with Jon Madsen losing via split decision. A year later, in 2010, he had beaten all three opponents in the regional organizations: Josh Henry (TKO), Reggie Higgins (UD) and Josh Robertson (SUB). After some inner crisis Wren headed to Africa to help enslaved pygmies the following years.

Burns signed with Bellator in 2011 losing three fights in a row against  
Eric Prindle by TKO, Thiago Santos by submission (RNC) and Rich Hale by TKO. "The Hammer" then left the promotion to have a couple of easy fights and then again signed with Bellator. Unfortunately Burns lost his two next bouts to Raphael Butler via TKO and to former pro-wrestler Bobby Lashley via RNC a year ago.
