Bellator 219 weigh-in results: One fight scratched, but main card set

TEMECULA, Calif. – MMA Junkie was on scene and reporting live from today’s early and official Bellator 219 fighter weigh-ins, where one fight was scratched before hitting the scales.

The early weigh-ins took place at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, Calif., and preceded the ceremonial weigh-ins for the fans, which take place at the same venue.

Bellator 219 takes place Friday at the same venue. The main card airs on Paramount and streams on DAZN following prelims on MMA Junkie.

Among those weighing in were Saad Awad (23-10 MMA, 11-7 BMMA) and Brandon Girtz (15-8 MMA, 7-6 BMMA), who meet in the lightweight main event. In the co-feature, former featherweight champion Daniel Straus (24-8 MMA, 11-5 BMMA) returns from a lengthy layoff following an accident and moves to lightweight to fight Shane Kruchten (12-4 MMA, 0-1 BMMA).

On the preliminary card, Weber Almeida (2-0 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) was unable to reach the 141-pound limit for his catchweight contest with Johnny Soto (0-0 MMA, 0-0 BMMA), and the bout was scrapped before he registered an official weight.

No doubt, him vs AK would have been a good scrap. Andrey should be able to handle this Jasper kid which Bellator would love to see.
Oh yeah, this is a lamb being led to slaughter.
