Bellator 172 Weigh-In Results: One Bout Almost Canceled


The Bellator 172 weigh-ins are history.

All 32 fighters on tomorrow night’s (Feb. 18) card stepped on the scales earlier today. Two fighters failed to make weight and one bout was actually canceled temporarily. Matthew Ramirez was set for a flyweight battle, but he missed weight by five pounds. The fight was saved when his opponent Jeremy Murphy agreed to gain weight.

Francisco France also missed weight for his middleweight contest. That fight will go on as well. France will give up 10 percent of his purse to his opponent Anatoly Tokov and 10 percent to the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).
