Bellator 61 takes place this evening at the Horseshoe Riverdome in Bossier City, Louisiana, and features Bellator Fighting Championships’ season six middleweight tournament quarterfinals.
This weekend, Bellator 61 was supposed to finally name the next man to challenge heavyweight champion Cole Konrad. Instead Eric Prindle pulled out of his rematch with Thiago Silva and delayed the rematch once again. Now, the card will be headlined by eight men hoping to earn a shot at the Bellator middleweight title. The field includes a few Bellator retreads, a UFC veteran and a former M-1 champion.
The fighter weigh-ins for Bellator 61 took place Thursday in Bossier City, Louisiana, in preparation for Friday night’s fights at the Horseshoe Riverdome.
Eduardo Dantas will face reigning Bellator bantamweight champ Zach Makovsky for the title at Bellator 65 in Atlantic City. The season six middleweight tournament semifinals are also scheduled.
