Bellator 171 Weigh in Results – All but two fighters make weight

The Fighters for Bellator 171 jumped on the scale today in Kansas City, all but 2 made weight

Bellator 171 takes place tomorrow night just outside Kansas City.  The fighters jumped on the scale today to qualify for their bouts tomorrow.  All the fighters involved made weight, with the exception of two fighters.  Brandon Phillips weighed in at 146.8 which is eight tenths of a pound more than he’s allowed to weigh.  On the preliminary card, Jordan Young missed the Middleweight mark, weighing in at 187.4 pounds.  Bellator made no immediate announcement as to what the process is for those fighters who missed weight.

The main event fight was scheduled to be a 175 pound catchweight fight, but was announced as a 180 pound catchweight during the weigh ins.  One of the two fighters was not going to make 175, so they pushed it to 180.  Both guys made 180 without an issue so the fight will go on as scheduled.

Jimmy Smith asked Melvin Guillard about the fight and he said, “I’m still hungry, I’m only 33 not that old. It’s going to be a good main event tomorrow night.  The fans will get what they paid for.”

When asked what it would be like to add a big name like Melvin Guillard to his win column Chidi said the following. “It’d be dope man, Melvin is a veteran in the game and shit, it’d be dope to bang it out with him.”
