The official weigh-in event for tomorrow night's (Sept. 13, 2013) Bellator 99 fight card takes place today (Sept. 12) at 8 p.m. ET from the Cabaret Lounge at Pechanga Resort in Temecula, California.
Headlining the main event will be a Bellator season nine featherweight tournament quarterfinal fight between recent title challenger Patricio Freire and former top 10 UFC 145-pounder Diego Nunes. Freire is fresh off a second round drubbing of tough prospect Jared Downing while "The Gun" is making his Bellator debut fresh off receiving his UFC release. The winner of this bout is expected to be a heavy favorite to win the rest of the tournament.
Also on tap will be a feature light heavyweight attraction between a pair of veterans as Vladimir Matyushenko takes on Houston Alexander. Both men are in their 40s and it will be interesting to see what they have left in the tank.
Last but not least, the rest of the season nine featherweight tournament quarterfinals will be kicking off as the likes of Akop Stepanyan, Justin Wilcox, Fabricio Guerreiro and more all vie for a shot at the title.
