“Rampage” Jackson and Joey Beltran have cleared the final hurdle to their main event scrap tomorrow night at Bellator 108, as both of the UFC vets made weight this afternoon in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The former UFC champion Jackson came in at 210 pounds for the 210 pound catch-weight fight, and Beltran weighed in at 208.5
After the two made weight, Jackson relayed to Bellator commentator Jimmy Smith that Beltran thinks he’s “washed up”, and that fans will be treated to an impressive showing.
The fight will mark the first time Jackson has fought since January, when he lost by unanimous decision to Glover Teixeira at UFC on FOX 6. Jackson exited the UFC having lost three straight fights, but the 35 year-old has said he’s a rejuvenated fighter lately, after having his knees rehabilitated. If Jackson loses, it certainly would be a huge win for the underdog Beltran, and a massive setback for “Rampage” (and Bellator).
Bellator 108 will also feature a heavyweight title fight between champion Alexander Volkov and recent tourney winner Vitaly Minakov. The champ came in at 235 pounds for the bout, while Minakov came in at 249.
And, the event will also showcase the featherweight tourney final between Justin Wilcox and Patricio “Pitbull”, who came in at 145.5 and 145.8 respectively. That fight also has some serious potential from an entertainment perspective.
Here are the official weigh-in results for Bellator 108, which will be hosted by the Revel. As always, the main card will be broadcast on SPIKE.
