Bellator 69 Weigh-In Results; Falcao Overweight on First Attempt

Today at the  L’Auberge du Lac Casino Resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana, all fighters competing on tomorrow night’s Bellator 69 fight card stepped on the scales for the event’s official weigh-ins.

Three fighters failed to make weight on their first attempts. Among them was Maiquel Falcao, who is scheduled to meet Andreas Spang in the main event of the evening for their middleweight tournament final bout. Preliminary card fighters E.J. Brooks and Josh Quayhagen also missed their marks. All three fighters will have an additional two hours to make the contracted weight, or forfeit a percentage of their purses to their opponents.

Bellator 69 takes place tomorrow at the L’Auberge du Lac and will air live on and then MTV 2 (and EPIX in HD). In addition to the middleweight final between Falcao and Spang, the fight card will feature a welterweight semifinal between Karl Amoussou and David Rickels.
