Officials have announced the Bellator 125 card with a middleweight fight between Doug Marshall and Melvin Manhoef occupying the main event.

Set for September 19 from the Savemart Center in Fresno, California, the main card will air on Spike TV.

Along with Marshall-Manhoef, James Irvin vs. Brian Rogers, Martin Stapleton vs. Goiti Yamauchi and Javy Ayala vs. Raphael Butler were all announced.

Marshall has won four of five with Bellator, including wins over Kala Hose, Andreas Spang and Brett Cooper. His only loss during that time came to current middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko.

“This fight is like a dream come true,” Marshall said. “Two heavy hitters going for broke. It’s a classic don’t blink fight. Bet the house someone is going to sleep before the first round is over. And to be able to have this type of fight in front of all my friends and family that I grew up with makes it that much sweeter.”

Manhoef is a former Strikeforce fighter and K-1 veteran, going 28-11 inside the cage with 26 knockouts over a 20-year career.

Rogers will be looking to keep his win streak intact against Irvin, a veteran of the UFC and one-time opponent for Anderson Silva.

“I’m excited to welcome James Irvin to the Bellator middleweight division,” Rogers said. “I’ve made my home in this division since 2011 and I plan on staying here for a long time. I know he’s probably planning on coming in here and re-establishing his career, but he isn’t doing that at my expense. I’m the worst person anyone can fight in the middleweight division right now. I want to get the word out to the middleweight division that this is my time. And when it comes to this fight, people better expect an extreme amount of violence.”

Below is the current lineup:

Middleweight: Doug Marshall vs. Melvin Manhoef

Middleweight: James Irvin vs. Brian Rogers

Featherweight: Martin Stapleton vs. Goiti Yamauchi

Heavyweight: Javy Ayala vs. Raphael Butler
