Bellator 115 weigh-ins are complete from Silver Legacy Hotel in Reno, Nevada, in preparation for the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's Spike TV event tomorrow night (Fri., April 4, 2014), which will showcase a Heavyweight world title fight between division champion, Vitaly Minakov, against former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) standout, Cheick Kongo.
Unfortunately, even before the combat sports action got under way, the Bellator 115 main card that was is set to air took two major hits. Jeremy Kimball failed to make weight, forcing the cancelation of his Middleweight tournament semifinal match against Dan Cramer.
In addition, Andrey Koreshkov came down with the flu and was unable to weigh in, postponing his Welterweight tournament semifinal bout against Sam Oropeza until later this season.
With the changes, the reworked Bellator 115 main card, including official weigh in results, now looks a little something like this:
Bellator Heavyweight World Title Fight: Cheick Kongo (232.8) vs. Vitaly Minakov (253.4)
Welterweight Feature Fight: Herman Terrado (170) vs. Justin Baesman (170.9)
Light Heavyweight Feature Fight: Volkan Oezdemir (205.6) vs. Kelly Anundson (205.8)
Catchweight Feature Fight (195lbs): Johnny Cisneros (192.6) vs. Mikkel Parlo (193.5)
