UFC Middleweight Maiquel Falcao

All the fighters slated to participate in tomorrow night’s “Bellator 69” event tipped the scale Thursday inside L’Auberge du Lac Casino Resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

As customary with most Bellator weigh-ins, the festivities didn’t go as smoothly as planned. The Middleweight Tournament finals between Maiquel Falcao (Pictured) and Andreas Spang was put in jeopardy after Falcoa initially missed his mark.

Fast forward a couple of hours and the Brazilian finally shed the last two pounds to green light their scrap.
