The Bellator 255 weigh-ins were conducted Thursday morning in Connecticut and while we did have two weight misses (one of them leading to a cancellation), they were both on the prelims. What’s most important is that Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire and Emmanuel Sanchez both came in under the 145 lbs limit for Friday’s Bellator featherweight title fight/Grand Prix semifinal. The winner faces the undefeated AJ McKee in the tournament final and obviously for the title as well.
