Bellator MMA is back inside their ‘FightSphere’ bubble this Friday. That bubble is formed around their regular stomping grounds of the Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort in Uncasville, CT. Atop their latest offering is a light heavyweight title fight between champion Ryan Bader and challenger Vadim Nemkov.
To make things official both Bader and Nemkov will need to hit exactly 205 lbs or lower. Also weighing in today is former Bellator featherweight champ Julia Budd, who looks to get back to winning ways versus Jessy Miele. Roy Nelson is also due to weigh in, for his heavyweight bout with Valentin Moldavsky.
You can watch the official weigh ins below, via Bellator MMA’s YouTube channel. The stream starts at 11 a.m. ET.
