The official weigh-ins for “Bellator 57” took place Friday at the Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Canada.
Tomorrow’s show features the finals of Bellator’s Welterweight and Middleweight tournaments.
Former UFC star Ben Saunders headlines the card against Douglas Lima. The winner not only pockets $100,000, but will also get next dibs at welterweight champ Ben Askren.
As tradition goes when it comes to Bellator weigh-ins, a couple of fighters missed their marks and will require additional time to make weight. Lima was .4 pounds over the welterweight limit.
MTV2 will broadcast Saturday’s main bouts starting at 9PM ET/PT.
