Tonight it’s time for Bellator 74. The weigh-in took place at Caesar’s Atlantic City, that hosts even the imminent bout.
Eighteen of the 20 fighters successfully made weight. The headliners are Lyman Good and Jim Wallhead, as well as the other six participants in the promotion’s upcoming season 7 welterweight tournament. Good weighed 170.2 pounds, Wallhead 169.8.
Alexandre “Popo” Bezerra and Matt McCook did not weigh in during the proceedings but will compete at a catchweight of 157 pounds. McCook is a replacement for Jeff Smith, who failed medicals.
Another change sees a featherweight match of Casey Johnson vs Will Martinez take the place of a previously announced contest of Plinio Cruz vs Kelvin Tiller. Cruz was injured in training and the fight was cancelled.
