The Bellator 283 weigh ins are calculated. A bit of a disappointment here when three fighters missed weight, including one of the main event fighters.
Douglas Lima missed by just 1.8 pounds when he exceeded the 171lb weight limit for the division. Lima is coming off a three fight loss streak and this will undoubtedly hurt his pay day. Jason Jackson came in right at 171.
Also missing weight, two fighters on the prelim card, Mark Coates and Kevin Bohem. Both fighters also sitting at near misses with Boehm coming in 1.6lbs over and Coates missing by 1.8lbs.
Here’s a promotional clip, courtesy of Bellator, for the upcoming event. Below that are the remaining weigh in results.
