Bellator 216 Weigh-In Results
Bellator 216 is set to go down tomorrow night at the Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort. Unfortunately, for many fans, it is not happening in England as many had hoped given the main event. The card will be headlined with the welterweight Grand Prix highly-anticipated matchup between Michael Page vs Paul Daley. The two have had a longtime feud and will finally get to fight.
Meanwhile, the co-main event features a rematch between Mirko Cro Cop vs Roy Nelson. The two were supposed to fight at Bellator 200 but Cro Cop had to pull out due to an injury. The fight before is a highly anticipated heavyweight bout where the winner should be getting the next title shot. Former Bellator heavyweight champion, Vitaly Minakov is back and taking on Cheick Kongo, who has been on a roll since joining Bellator.
The other two fights on the card are Yaroslav Amasov taking on Erick Silva and Valerie Loureda making her anticipated Bellator debut against Colby Fletcher.
And, at the weigh-ins earlier today, all 10 fighters made weight meaning all main card fights are a go. The card is live on DAZN at 10 p.m. Eastern in what should be a great night of fights.
