Bellator Fighting Championships returns to the Chicago Theater in Downtown Chicago for the second time this year for their 25th edition. The card will feature first round matches in both their heavyweight and women’s 115-pound tournaments. Also on the card, middleweight tournament finalist Dan Hornbuckle returns to action against UFC and IFL veteran Brad Blackburn.
Fighters competing tonight at Bellator 25 weighed in Wednesday at Chicago’s Hotel Sax. All fighters were on point except for Shonie Carter, who was five pounds over the 171 lbs. allowed for welterweight non-title fights.
