The Bellator 107 weigh-ins are in the books, and four fighters still have some pounds left to shed. Included among that group are three main-card fighters – including a tournament finalist.

Derek Campos (156.7)** vs. Martin Stapleton (157.1)***

** Campos was given one hour to cut to the lightweight maximum of 156 pounds.
*** Stapleton was given one hour to cut to the lightweight maximum of 156 pounds.


Same thing happened last week with 2 fighters fighting each other, they both missed weight.
My thinking is why have either guy try and lose the weight since they're both off the mark.
I would understand if it was for a title or even a tourney match but it isn't.

Lol. No kidding.

My thinking is why have them drain themselves even more at this point? They might have had a rough weight cut and that extra lbs could factor in on their performance.

because that would make far too much sense for any athletic commission to approve..
