Bellator 52 was a mixed martial arts event held by Bellator Fighting Championships. It took place on October 1, 2011 at the L'Auberge du Lac Casino Resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

It was an action-packed start to the Bellator Heavyweight Tournament as eight heavy hitters lined up inside the L'Auberge Casino Resort in Lake Charles for Bellator 52 to kickoff the quarterfinals of the Season 5 tournament. Ron "The Monster" Sparks will take on Eric Prindle and Mike "300" Hayes faces Blagoi Ivanov in the semifinals after big wins in Louisiana this weekend

"It was another great night in another full house at L'Auberge Casino Resort in Lake Charles," Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney said. "Our heavyweights put on some explosive performances tonight, and I can't wait for the semifinals later this month at Bellator 56 from Memorial Hall in Kansas City."

Mike Hayes vs Neil Grove:

Nobody touches gloves here as Hayes pumps his jab and Grove catches it. Hayes is throwing leg kicks but Grove isn't taking his eyes away from Hayes' head. Grove lands a heavy leg kick of his own and Hayes gets on his bike, An outside leg kick lands for Hayes, he steps back and then misses with a straight punch. Hayes misses with a leg kick and Grove rocks him with a leg kick and left hook combination. Both strikes find their home and while Hayes is throwing more strikes out there it's clear Grove has more power behind his punches.

The heavyweights exchange feeler jabs. Hayes goes low with his, and Grove goes in for a low kick. Hayes fires back with one of his own. Hayes throws another leg kick. Grove throws a nother low kick followed with a right straight. Both fighters are content to stand and trade leg kicks.

Grove is the much bigger fighter, as Hayes was the smallest quarterfinalists at 228 pounds. The crowd is starting to get frustrated with the lack of action. They tie up and Hayes trips Grove to get a brief takedown, but Grove quickly makes back to his feet. They exchange then break. Hayes spends the rest of the round jumping in and out with quick punches.
