As seems to have started to become a trend with Bellator, a main event fighter failed to make weight Thursday.
Bellator 69’s headliner between Maiquel Falcao and Andreas Spang ran into some issues, as the season six middleweight finalist Falcao tipped the scales at 188 pounds. He will have two hours to make weight; Spang made weight for the bout.
Karl Amoussou and David Rickles, Megumi Fujii and Jessica Aguilar, and Ron Sparks and Kevin Asplund all made weight for the other three MTV2-televised main card bouts.
MMAConvert will have complete coverage of the entire event beginning Friday night with the prelims from L’Auberge du Lac Casino Resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
UPDATE: Falcao made weight on his second attempt, coming in at 186 pounds.
