Four middleweight contenders hit their marks on the eve of Bellator Fighting Championships 20, which hosts its 185-pound tournament semi-finals Thursday at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio.

Bryan Baker weighed in at 186 pounds for his rematch with Eric Schambari (185). Baker took a split decision over Schambari at WEC 31 in December 2007.

In the opposite bracket, Siberian striker Alexander Shlemenko came in at 184.8 pounds, while last year’s tournament finalist Jared Hess clocked in at 185.2 pounds. The winner of season two’s tournament earns the opportunity to challenge divisional champion Hector Lombard.

In other Bellator 20 action on Thursday, UFC veteran Eddie Sanchez (234.4) will lock horns with Marcus Sursa, who came in at 219.2 pounds.
