Bellator 149 video: Kimbo Slice vs. Dada 5000 weigh-in (but Coker nixes staredown)

Due to yesterday's wild press conference, Kimbo Slice and Dada 5000 didn't have a staredown at the Bellator 149 weigh-ins on Thursday.

If you missed the Dhafir Harris (Dada 5000) vs. Kimbo Slice weigh-in earlier today, that's probably because Bellator's live stream didn't work. They were forced to use a Periscope stream for the main card weigh-ins, so that was the only way to watch today's event aside from actually physically being there. Dada 5000 weighed exactly 265, while Kimbo came in much lighter at 232. Kimbo said he was "going to kill Dada 5000 with a smile" when interviewed by Jimmy Smith.

You can watch the video at the top of the page, and you will observe that there was no staredown between tomorrow night's co-headliners. Bellator CEO Scott Coker told MMA Mania's Michael Stets why he opted not to have them do the customary face off, and it did pertain to Thursday's "baby nuts" press conference.

As a reminder, there will be increased security surrounding this fight, as was the case for the press conference.
