UNCASVILLE, Conn. Bellator’s heavyweight tournament continues Friday night in Connecticut with a main event featuring 520 pounds of tough MMA veterans.
Tonight, the Bellator 194 fighters got face to face at the ceremonial weigh-ins before they meet in the cage. In the main event, Roy Nelson (22-14 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) meetes Matt Mitrione (12-5 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) in a rematch. The winner will advance into the semifinals of the heavyweight grand prix.
Their face-off was serious, if not intense. But there were plenty of eyes on the women’s flyweight bout between boxers Heather Hardy (1-1 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) and Ana Julaton (2-3 MMA, 0-1 BMMA). The two had built some heat, anyway, but the circumstances around Hardy missing weight earlier in the day by a quarter-pound may have added a little fuel to the fire.
Check out the highlights from the main card from Friday’s ceremonial weigh-ins, which took place at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. The Mohegan Sun Arena hosts Friday’s event, which has a main card on Paramount following prelims on MMAjunkie.
