Bellator 74 weigh-in results

Bellator Fighting Championships is set to kick off its seventh season along with its welterweight tournament tomorrow night.  Officially, all of the tournament fighters made weight and two fighters missed weight.

In an odd situation, Jeff Smith failed medicals and was not allowed to fight.  Replacement fighter Matt McCook did not weigh in at the event today due to the fact that he was traveling to New Jersey, and neither did his opponent Alexandre Bezerra.  The two fighters will go at one another in a catchweight fight at 157-pounds.

The final change to the card is that Plinio Cruz was injured in training, and his fight against Kevin Tiller is being replaced by Casey Johnson vs. Will Martinez at featherweight.
