Bellator 57 weigh in results LIVE from Ontario for 'Lima vs Saunders'

The official weigh-in event for Bellator 57's Saturday evening fight card took place today (November 11, 2011) inside Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario.

There was a bit of drama as welterweight tournament finalist Douglas Lima as well as top featherweight prospect Alexandre Bezerra both came in 0.4 pounds overweight. They have two hours to lose the required 0.4 pounds. Lima must drop the weight to be granted a title shot.

Bellator 57 will be the conclusion of both the season five welterweight and middleweight tournaments. Squaring off in the welterweight finals will be former MFC welterweight champion Douglas Lima against Ultimate Fighter veteran and lethal striker Ben Saunders.

In the middleweight finals, former title challenger Alexander Shlemenko will battle Wand Fight Team's Brazilian jiu-jitsu coach, Vitor Vianna. Both fights promise to be very entertaining.

Also on the card are a pair of bouts that are hoping to showcase future talent. In light heavyweight action, MFC veteran Roger Hollett takes on huge Ohio native John Hawk with a spot in the Bellator season six light heavyweight tournament on the line.

Opening the main card will be a very exciting battle as top Bellator featherweight prospect Alexandre Bezzera takes on UFC veteran and former Shark Fights champion Doug Evans.
