Bellator 110 Weigh-In Results

Bellator’s tenth season of action kicks off tomorrow night with Bellator 110.  But before the season can start, the fighters had to tip the scales in an effort to make their bouts official for Friday.  The event will feature six tournament bouts, with the start of the four man light heavyweight tournament and the start of the eight man featherweight tournament.  All tournament bouts have become official, as the 12 fighters made weight.

The only fighter that missed weight was light heavyweight Dave Roberts, who weighed in at 212-pounds for his undercard fight against Pat Schultz.  Because he missed weight, it has been announced that he will not compete, resulting in the bout being scrapped.
