The official weigh-in event for tomorrow night's Bellator 60 fight card took place today (March 8, 2012) at 6 p.m. ET from the Horseshoe Casino Venue Lobby in Hammond, Indiana.
Of the 20 fighters who stepped onto the scales, a whopping four missed weight. Most notable of all was featherweight tournament quarterfinalist Genair da Silva, who came in three pounds over the 146 pound limit and has to make weight within two hours or forfeit his ability to compete in the tournament.
Bellator 60 features a featherweight title fight as champion Joe Warren looks to defend his championship for the first time and challenger Pat Curran hopes to win his first title on his second try. Warren is coming off a disheartening non-title loss in his pursuit to win the season five bantamweight tournament, while Curran was able to handily win the "Summer Series" Featherweight Tournament to earn his latest shot.
The remainder of the main card will also feature the featherweight division as Bellator will hold the quarterfinals of its season six 145-pound tournament.
"Summer Series" finalist Marlon Sandro will battle Roberto Vargas, season four tournament finalist Daniel Straus takes on undefeated Jeremy Spoon, top English prospect Ronnie Mann challenges alternate Mike Corey and top Brazilians Alexandre "Popo" Bezerra and Genair da Silva will square off.
