All 20 fighters, including lightweight tournament finalists Marcin Held and Dave Jansen, were on the marks Wednesday for their Thursday fights at Bellator 93.
Bellator 93 takes place at Androscoggin Bank Colisée in Lewiston, Maine. The main card airs on Spike TV following prelims on Spike.com.
Held (15-2 MMA, 4-1 BFC) and Jansen (19-2 MMA, 5-0 BFC) meet in the delayed 155-pound tourney finals from Season 7. The winner will collect a total of $100,000 in tournament prize money and a shot at the lightweight title. Both fighters came in on target, with Held weighing 155.9 pounds and Jansen just one-tenth different at 155.8.
Also on the main card, former UFC standout and fan favorite Marcus Davis (170.5) makes his Bellator debut in a welterweight bout against Waachiim Spiritwolf (170.6). And a pair of heavyweights collide as Travis Wiuff (254.1) takes on Ryan Martinez (257.4).
