Despite losing it's headliner in Patricky Pitbull, Bellator 87 will go on Thursday. Before that, everyone left uninjured successfully weighed in Wednesday afternoon. On top of that, the new headliners added a special condition to their fight.
As we reported Wednesday afternoon, tomorrow's Bellator event took a big hit when expected headliner Patricky Freire was forced from his fight due to injury. With "Pitbull" out, Saad Awad has taken his spot in the Lightweight tournament quarterfinal.
Having been upgraded to the Bellator 87 main event, David Rickels and Lloyd Woodard have decided to add an extra element to their fight. When the two faced off after weighing in, the other half of the Lightweight tourney quarterfinals agreed that the loser would have to shave their facial hair.
The event will go down tomorrow night at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mt. Pleasant, MI. The preliminary bouts will be streamed live on Spike.com before the main card is broadcast on Spike TV starting at 10 pm EST (7 pm PST).
