The official weigh-in event for Bellator 58's Saturday evening fight card took place today (November 18, 2011) at Paradise Live, inside The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
Of the 18 fighters who stepped on the scales, 16 successfully made weight. Florida natives Cosmo Alexander and Jessica Aguilar have two hours to drop 1.75 and 1.5 pounds respectively.
Bellator 58 features two of the promotion's champions who are competing on the card. One, Eddie Alvarez, will be looking to defend his lightweight title for the second time against Bellator season four tournament winner Michael Chandler, who earned a shot at the title earlier this year.
The other, Hector Lombard, will be competing in a 195 pound "superfight" against former UFC and Strikeforce competitor Trevor Prangley. Lombard will be showcasing his talents in his fourth Bellator non-title fight just one week after middleweight Alexander Shlemenko won the season five tournament to earn another crack at his title.
Lastly, former Sengoku featherweight champion and Bellator summer series tournament finalist Marlon Sandro will look to get back on track against WEC veteran and fellow Brazilian Rafael Diaz.
