The official weigh-in event for tomorrow night's (May 4, 2012) Bellator 67 fight card took place today (May 3, 2012) at 5 p.m. ET from inside Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Canada.
Of the 16 fighters who stepped on the scales, everyone made weight except for Will Romero, who came in 3.8 pounds overweight. Romero will have two hours to get the extra baggage off. Also, a Welterweight bout between Nordine Taleb and late replacement Matt MacGrath, was agreed to be at a catch weight of 180-pounds by both competitors.
Headlining the main event will be a lightweight non-title bout as undefeated (9-0) Bellator 155-pound champion Michael Chandler takes on Japanese Pride, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and DREAM veteran Akihiro Gono.
Also on the card is a Bellator season six welterweight tournament semifinal fight between former tournament finalists Bryan Baker and Ben Saunders in a fight that expects to bring some serious violence.
