Bellator 118 takes place Friday night inside Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
A bantamweight interim title tilt between Joe Warren and Rafael Silva headlines tonight’s show. Unfortunately for Silva, only Warren will be competing for the hardware.
Silva, who stepped in on short notice after bantamweight champ Eduardo Dantas was forced to withdraw due to injury, clocked 136.9 pounds on the scale Friday. Athletes can’t weigh more than 135 lbs. for a bantamweight tile affair.
Warren weighed 134.6 pounds.
Therefore, a victorious Warren captures the manufactured crown. If Silva gets his hand raised, he simply adds to his win column but won’t leave with the belt.
Spike.com streams the preliminary bouts live starting at 7PM ET/4PM PT. Spike TV airs the main card at 9PM ET/PT.
