Bellator 136 Weigh-in Results: Will Brooks, Dave Jansen on Point for Main Event

By Tristen Critchfield Apr 9, 2015
The Will Brooks era begins in earnest on Friday when the lightweight champion makes his first title defense against surging challenger Dave Jansen at Bellator 136.

Both fighters hit their contracted marks at weigh-ins on Thursday, as Brooks checked in at 155 pounds, while Jansen tipped the scales at 154.6.

Bellator 136 takes place at Bren Events Center in Irvine, Calif., and also features a middleweight co-main event pitting Joe Schilling (185.6) against Rafael Carvalho (185.8). Two other bouts round out the main card, as Marcin Held (155.8) meets Alexander Sarnavskiy (155) at lightweight and Alexander Volkov (243) locks horns with Tony Johnson (264) in a heavyweight affair.

The Bellator 136 main card airs on Spike TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET, while the preliminary draw streams on at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Brooks enters the bout on a six-fight winning streak. “Ill Will” captured the interim 155-pound strap with a split-decision verdict over Michael Chandler at Bellator 120 before earning the organization’s undisputed crown with a fourth-round stoppage of Chandler at Bellator 131.

Jansen initially earned his title shot by winning the promotion’s Season 7 lightweight tournament. After an ACL injury sidelined him for more than a year, Jansen returned to action at Bellator 130, where he took a unanimous decision victory over Rick Hawn. “The Fugitive” has won seven straight fights under the Bellator banner.
