Bellator Newcastle: Weigh-in Results
Bellator continued the build-up for their first show on the European series in Newcastle on Saturday night, by holding the customary weigh-ins the day before the event.
The ceremonial weigh-ins took place at BonBar in Newcastle, with fans and media alike packing out the room in the final bit of build-up to the event.
Nearly all the fights made it through the weigh-ins, with two seemingly under threat, with Lee Chadwick who will open the main card with Fabian Edwards, weighing in 1.5lbs over the limit. Talks took place straight away between both camps and Bellator officials, and it was agreed the fight would go ahead.
There has been one fight cut from the card, as Bailey Gilbert, who was due to face Dominique Wooding, didn’t even make it to the scales for the official weigh-ins on Friday morning. Sources state that it is due to an injury, but there has been no confirmation from Gilbert’s camp or the fighter himself as of yet. The cancellation of the fight was not confirmed by Bellator officials, and no mention of it at the ceremonial weigh-ins before the fans, but will definitely not be on the card come Saturday.
Luckily however every other fighter weighed in without a problem. There were the customary scuffles during face-offs by every fighter on the main card, with Edwards and Chadwick continuing theirs off stage, and Joseph Calboutin pushed opponent Milad Ahady away and out of camera shot.
