Despite the failure of Thiago Santos to make the heavyweight limit for his Bellator 62 headliner against Eric Prindle , the card doesn’t appear to have lost out on much entertainment value given the octet of outstanding lightweights poised to compete at this evening’s event in hopes of moving on to the semifinal round of the Season 6 155-pound tournament. Participants include sensational scrapper Patricky Freire , Olympic judoka Rick Hawn , former welterweight stand-out Brent Weedman , and more.

For the second time in as many weeks a bout between Bellator Season 5 heavyweight tournament finalists Thiago Santos and Eric Prindle was scratched from a card’s headlining slot due to one of the involved fighters’ inability to compete. While last week’s cancellation involved Prindle suffering from an undisclosed illness, it appears his health was a moot point based on his Brazilian adversary’s inability to come in at 265 pounds for their pairing. Santos stepped on the scale Thursday at 277.75 pounds, well north of the division’s limit.
