Bellator will close out its Summer Series tomorrow night in New Mexico, with a card that features two title fights as well as two tournament finals. All of the main card competitors made weight for the event this afternoon, which will be hosted by the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.
Lightweight champion Michael Chandler came in at 154.4 pounds for his title fight with David Rickels, who weighed in at 154.6. Welterweight champ Ben Askren, meanwhile, tipped the scales at 169.9, while recent tourney winner Andrey Koreshkov weighed 169.2
