The official weigh-in event for tomorrow night's (Nov. 16, 2012) Bellator 81 fight card took place today (Nov. 15) at 5 p.m. ET from the Ryan Center in Kingston, Rhode Island.
Of the 22 fighters who stepped on the scale, all of them made weight, although a few were negotiated catchweights in advance due to short notice.
Headlining the main event of Bellator 81 will be a lightweight showdown pitting a crafty veteran against a promising young talent as 35-year old Rich Clementi battles 20-year old Marcin Held in the Bellator season seven 155 pound tournament semifinals.
The other semifinal bout pits WEC veteran Dave Jansen against well-rounded Brazilian Ricardo Tirloni in what expects to be a very entertaining battle.
Also on tap, two-time featherweight tournament finalist Marlon Sandro returns to the cage against the well-traveled Dustin Neace while Jonas Billstein and Perry Filkins throwdown in a battle of middleweight prospects.
