Bellator 159 weigh-in results: What are the odds Melvin Guillard missed weight again?
(mmajunkie.com)
The weigh-ins are in the books for Friday’s Bellator 159 event, and there was a familiar refrain for one of the fighters on the main card. For the fourth time in five fights, lightweight Melvin Guillard (32-16-2 MMA, 0-2 BMMA) missed his mark on the scale, this time for his bout against hometown favorite David Rickels (17-4 MMA, 11-4 BMMA). Guillard came in at 157.9 pounds for the co-main event. Rickels was 155.8. In Febraury, Guillard missed weight for his fight against Derek Campos at Bellator 149. He was knocked out in the second round. In two fights for WSOF before he signed with Bellator, he missed weight on both occasions. In the second, he was supposed to challenge champion Justin Gaethje for his lightweight title – but the fight was no longer a title bout after Guillard missed weight. The complete Bellator 159 weigh-in results included: MAIN CARD (Spike, 9 p.m. ET) Darrion Caldwell (136) vs. Joe Taimanglo (138) Melvin Guillard (157.9) vs. Dave Rickels (155.8) Emily Ducote (125.3) vs. Bruna Vargas (125.1) Emmanuel Sanchez (146) vs. Daniel Weichel (145.2) PRELIMINARY CARD (MMAjunkie, 7 p.m. ET) Philipe Lins (204.6) vs. Guilherme Viana (205.1) Bruna Ellen (125) vs. Jessica Middleton (125.4) L.J. Hermreck (144.5) vs. Gaston Reyno (146) Manny Meraz (170.8) vs. Trey Ogden (166.8) Matt Foster (188.9) vs. Chris Harris (184.8) Fernando Martinez (155.8) vs. Marcio Navarro (155.3) Johnny Marigo (134.7) vs. Andy Riley (135.3) Henry Lindsay (155.9) vs. Josh Pfeifer (155.5) Brandon Phillips (145.8) vs. Chuka Willis (146.8)

Done with major MMA gyms, Melvin Guillard's goal is to collect full paycheck at Bellator 159
(mmajunkie.com)
More than two years have passed since Melvin Guillard was credited with a full paycheck. It’s all by his own doing, though; he’s either failed to collect his win bonus, or a portion of his contracted money was taken away due to missing weight. It’s been a rough couple of years for Guillard (32-16-2 MMA, 0-2 BMMA), who Friday’s Bellator 159 co-main event showdown with David Rickels (17-4 MMA, 11-4 BMMA) on the first three-fight losing skid of his career. He has just three victories in his past 12 fights overall. The past five years have been a forgettable stretch for “The Young Assassin,” who at 33 and with more than 50 professional fights on his resume, isn’t all that young anymore.

Alexander Shlemenko’s drug suspension to be lifted after court ruling
(mmafighting.com)
Alexander Shlemenko will be able to fight again in the United States much sooner than expected. The former Bellator middleweight champion had his three-year suspension and $10,000 fine from the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) reduced in a court decision Wednesday, per court documents. Shlemenko tested positive for steroids in February 2015 and was levied the sanctions by a unanimous commission vote in June 2015. The California Superior Court ruled that CSAC was only able to suspend Shlemenko until his license expired back on Feb. 28.. Shlemenko will also have to pay only a $5,000 fine. The Russian fighter's suspension will be lifted as soon as he pays the fine. Shlemenko is still under contract with Bellator, per promotion spokesperson Danny Brener.

Jose Aldo: I had a spy in Frankie Edgar's training room during UFC 200 fight week
(mmafighting.com)
RIO DE JANEIRO -- Jose Aldo returned in grand fashion at UFC 200, defeating Frankie Edgar via unanimous decision to claim the interim featherweight championship. Back in Brazil, the Nova Uniao fighter has revealed that he had a spy during fight week. The UFC usually separates the fighters at the hotel in two different groups, and Aldo says that he looked at the list of athletes training at the second room to see who could give him information about Edgar’s training routine and strategy. According to the interim champion, that’s why he didn’t throw many kicks during the 25-minute fight.
