The Bellator 284 weigh ins are all accounted for and only a few fighters missed their marks. The event takes place Friday, August 12 from the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Prelims begin at 6:00 PM ET and the main card goes live at 9:00 PM ET.

The main event is USA native Neiman Gracie (11-3-0) taking on Brazilian Goiti Yamauchi (27-5-0) in the welterweight division. Gracie is looking to make a statement since his decision loss to Logan Storley earlier this year. Yamauchi may prove difficult however, having stopped his last two opponents in the first round.

The co-main event is Russian fighter Valentin Moldavsky (11-2-0) vs Steve Mowry (10-0-0) in the heavyweight division. Moldavsky was on a tear in the division, before his January loss to Ryan Bader, in a five round decision. Not only does Mowry remain undefeated, he has finished every fighter he’s met in Bellator, with only one fighter making it out of the first round.

Here’s a video, courtesy of Bellator MMA, of the weigh ins. Below that, are the remaining Bellator 284 weigh ins.
