The Bellator 26 fight will take place this Thursday with high expectations.
The Weigh-ins for Bellator 26 was done today and the night’s main card competitors Jose Vega (134 pounds) and Danny Tims (135.5) were successfully weighed. But prelim fighters Jeb Chiles and Demetrius Richards were not present and will make their fight final tonight.
Bellator 26 takes place Thursday at the Kansas City Power & Light District in Kansas City, Mo., and the main card airs on FOX Sports Net.
The weigh-ins took place at downtown Kansas City’s Marriott Hotel with a pre-fight press conference.
The participants hit the scales without any issues. The six competitors made weight on first attempt while non-tourney fighters Carl and Tyler Stinson each made their catchweight contest official.
The full weigh-in results included:
* Jose Vega (134) vs. Danny Tims (135.5) – bantamweight tourney first round
* Mike Hayes (238) vs. Alexey Oleinik (230) – heavyweight tourney first round
* Aisling Daly (115) vs. Lisa Ward (114) – 115-pound female tourney opening round
* Steve Carl (174) vs. Tyler Stinson (173)
* Rudy Bears (182) vs. Zak Cummings (181)
* Kevin Croom (145) vs. Brian Davidson (145)

* Jeb Chiles vs. Demetrius Richards
A clash featuring Tyler Stinson is on the roll-out at Bellator 26. While Stinson comes in, Rory Markham goes out.
The season-four welterweight-tourney qualifier is airing Thursday at the Kansas City Power & Light District in Missouri. This is where Markham (16-6 MMA, 0-0 BFC) gets disqualified for not obtaining medical clearance. The Miletech Martial Arts member said his extreme weight cut resulted in his fighting with a collapsed lung at UFC 95 where he lost.
Stinson (18-6 MMA, 1-1 BFC), on the other hand, earned a fighting contract after trying out at Bellator earlier this year. He also got in at a Bellator’s season-two welterweight-tourney qualifier, because Seam Pierson was forced to exit due to an injury. The Kansas City native dropped a submission win for now tourney runner-up Dan Hornbuckle. Despite Stinson’s loss, he still managed to impress the boss.Read the rest of the article »
