Bellator 100 Weigh-In Results: Ben Saunders, Douglas Lima On Point for Main Event

By Mike Whitman Sep 19, 2013
The Season 8 welterweight finals will finally go down on Friday night, when Ben Saunders takes on Douglas Lima in the Bellator 100 main event.

Both Saunders and Lima were cleared to compete at Thursday’s pre-fight weigh-ins, checking in at 169.4 and 169.9 pounds, respectively. The welterweights, who first met almost two years ago in the Season 5 tournament finals, were expected to rematch this past March to close out Season 8, but that booking was postponed when Lima broke his hand. Their planned Bellator 97 clash was then delayed in June after Lima tore cartilage in his ribs during training.

Bellator 100 takes place at the Grand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix. The event will also showcase the opening round of the Season 9 welterweight draw, as Brent Weedman (170.4), War Machine (170.4), Rick Hawn (170.6) and Ron Keslar (170.5) square off with Justin Baesman (170.1), Vaughn Anderson (170.1), Herman Terrado (171) and Luis Sergio Teotonio da Fonseca Melo Jr. (170.8), respectively.

Prior to the evening’s Spike TV-broadcast main card, the Spike.com-streamed prelims will feature a bantamweight tournament semifinal between Travis Marx (135.8) and Brandon Bender (135.2), while former NCAA Division I wrestling champion Bubba Jenkins (155.6) meets Larue Burley (153.8) at lightweight.
