The official weigh-in event for tomorrow night's (Jan. 24, 2013) Bellator 86 fight card took place today (Jan. 23) at 6 p.m. ET from the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma.
All of the 20 fighters who stepped on the scale successfully made weight.
The headlining bout of Bellator 86 will be a welterweight title fight between champion Ben Askren and challenger Karl Amoussou. Neither of these guys have had much nice to say to each other ever since Amoussou won the season six welterweight tournament and promised to dethrone Askren and "bring some excitement back to the division." This should be a good grudge match.
