Prelim Fight Cancelled After Bellator 209 Weigh-In
Earlier on Wednesday, all 32 competitors for Bellator 209 took to the scale one day prior to Bellator’s return to Israel in Tel-Aviv.
The main event, a showdown between Featherweight champion Patricio Frerie and Emmanuel Sanchez, is in no risk of being cancelled, as both fighters came to the scale under the 145 pound limit.
Two fighters would run into weight issues as welterweight Jackie Gosh and lightweight Ido Halfon would miss weight on Wednesday.
Halfon’s preliminary fight against Itay Tratner has been cancelled, and Gosh’s fight against Jamil Ibragimov is still set for the prelims on Thursday evening.
