The official weigh-in event for Bellator 44 took place today (May 13, 2011) in advance of tomorrow night's card, which airs live on MTV2 at 9 p.m. ET, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Of the 16 fighters who weighed in, 15 successfully made weight. Former WEC fighter Anthony Morrison lived up to his "Cheesesteak" nickname by coming in a whopping 10.5-pounds. over the 136-pound limit for his bantamweight tournament qualifier match with Bryan Goldsby.

That fight has now been cancelled, according to Sherdog.com.

Headlining the main event will be the final "super-fight" of season four as  Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard looks to feast on UFC veteran Falaniko Vitale. Lombard has a penchant for ending these non-title affairs very quickly.

Also on the card will be the finals of the season four lightweight tournament as Missouri standout wrestler Michael Chandler squares off against Brazilian knockout artist Patricky "Pitbull" Freire.

Two season five eliminator bouts will also be on the table as Bellator season two middleweight tournament winner Alexander "Storm" Shlemenko matches up with veteran Brett Cooper and bantamweights Bryan Goldsby and Anthony Morrison compete for a spot in the bantamweight tournament..
