Bellator 81 Weigh-In Results: Held, Clementi, Jansen, Tirloni Cleared for Lightweight Semis



All four Season 7 lightweight tournament semifinalists hit their contracted marks at Thursday’s Bellator 81 weigh-ins.

Friday night’s show will be headlined by Polish prospect Marcin Held (156) clashing with UFC veteran Rich Clementi (156) at the Ryan Center in Kingston, R.I. The event airs live on MTV2 and will also see WEC veteran Dave Jansen (156) square off with well-rounded Brazilian Ricardo Tirloni (156) to decide the second lightweight finalist.

The Nov. 16 event showcases the return of former Sengoku champion Marlon Sandro (145.5), who toes the line against “Ultimate Fighter” Season 14 alumnus Dustin Neace (146). Just prior, a middleweight confrontation pitting Perry Filkins (185) against Jonas Billstein (185) will kick off the main card broadcast.

The preliminary card streams live on Spike.com and features seven bouts: Robbie Leroux (135) vs. Ruben Rey (136), Paul Barrow (155) vs. Matt Bessette (150), Sam McCoy (185) vs. Brennan Ward (184.5), Matt Uhde (209.5) vs. Mike Mucitelli (209.5), Joseph Lamoureux (185) vs. Dan Cramer (185.5), Andrew Calandrelli (156) vs. Eric Brown (155.5) and Murad Machaev (167) vs. Lorawnt-T Nelson (167).
