Bellator MMA is set to conclude its heavyweight tournament, with Fedor Emelianenko taking on light heavyweight kingpin Ryan Bader in the Bellator 214 main event on Saturday.
Emelianenko hit the scales at 236.2 pounds, as he prepares to face Bader (227.8) for the heavyweight tournament championship as the Bellator 214 main event this Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Co-headlining the event will be a featherweight matchup between highly touted prospect Aaron Pico (145.5) and Henry Corrales (145.7) -- all of whom made weight easily at Friday's official weigh-in.
Bellator 214 "Fedor vs. Bader," which airs live on Paramount and simulcast on DAZN at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, also features former professional wrestler "Jack Swagger" Jake Hager (238) making his MMA debut at heavyweight against J.W. Kiser (224.3). At bantamweight, Juan Archuleta (135.8) will meet Ricky Bandejas (135.9). Rounding out the main card will be a featherweight clash pitting Brandon McMahan (144.7) against Jay Glazer's "Merging Vets and Players" signee Adel Altamimi (144.9).
One fighter missed weight: Weber Almeida (*136.8), who came in .8 pounds heavy for his bantamweight bout, and he has been fined 20 percent of his purse.
