The official weigh-in event for tomorrow night's (May 18, 2012) Bellator 69 fight card takes place today (May 17, 2012) at 2 p.m. ET from inside L'Auberge du Lac Casino Resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
Of the 20 fighters who stepped onto the scales two of them missed weight. Main eventer Maiquel Falcao stepped onto the scales at 188 pounds, which is two over the contracted 186 pound cutoff. He'll have two hours to drop two pounds. Also missing weight was Lake Charles' own Josh Quayhagen, who was 2.2 pounds over the 156 pound limit for his fight.
Edit: Falcao has made weight at 186 pounds
Headlining the main event will be a Bellator season six middleweight tournament final featuring a pair of hot-headed strikers in Brazilian Maiquel Falcao and Swede Andreas Spang. Both men practically came to blows in their last staredown so this should be very interesting.
In female mixed martial arts (MMA) action, the number one and two ranked 115 pounders in the world will duke it out as Japanese submission ace Megumi Fujii takes on American Top Team's Jessica Aguilar. Lastly, heavyweights Ron Sparks and Kevin Asplund are expected to throw down in a tournament eliminator bout.
