Bellator begin their European Series tomorrow evening at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle upon Tyne. Before the main event, which will see the main card screened live on Channel 5, there was the small matter of the official weigh-ins. Taking place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, there was seemingly no drama. Right up until the last second that is.
Weighing in at bang on 11am, Lee Chadwick hit the scales at 187.5lbs meaning that he missed weight by 1.5lbs. Prior to Chadwick missing weight, the only other fighter not to appear was Bailey Gilbert. Word soon started circulating that Gilbert had pulled out of his fight with Dominique Wooding but at this stage, the reasons behind his withdrawal are unknown. Other than the last-minute drama, all other fighters on the card made weight with no issues.
WHOA will be in attendance at the Utilita Arena tomorrow evening so stay tuned for live updates.
