Bellator 65 weigh in results LIVE from New Jersey for 'Makovsky vs Dantas'

via www.themmanews.com

The official weigh-in event for tomorrow night's Bellator 65 fight card took place today (April 12, 2012) at 5 p.m. ET from the lobby of Caesar's Atlantic City in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Of the 20 fighters who stepped onto the scales, 19 made weight. LeVon Maynard still has to drop another 0.6 pounds in two hours before he can battle Lyman Good for his full paycheck.

Headlining Bellator 65 will be a bantamweight title fight between champion Zach Makovsky and challenger Eduardo Dantas. Makovsky has dominated two non-title "superfights" in the interim while waiting for Dantas to win the Bellator season five bantamweight tournament. This bout should produce some fireworks.

Also on the card, the Bellator season six featherweight tournament continues with a pair of strong wrestlers as Ohio's Daniel Straus battles Mike Corey in a semifinal match-up.

The main card will be opened with a pair of solid season six bantamweight quarterfinal fights featuring former tournament participants. Season five finalist Alexis Vila will take on tough Brazilian Luis Nogueira and former title challenger Ed West battles the always-unlucky Marcos Galvao.
