Friday’s Bellator 219: Awad vs. Girtz is set following Thursday’s weigh-in in Temecula, Calif. Lightweight contenders Saad Awad and Brandon Girtz square off in the main event, each man trying to fight his way into title contention.
Two fighters missed weight on Thursday with one bout being canceled, but the other remaining on the fight card.
Weber Almeida vs. Johnny Soto was scratched because Almeida failed to make weight for their 140-pound catchweight contest, although Soto was paid his show money. A lightweight bout between David Pacheco and Kelvin Gentapana remained on the fight card with Pacheco coming in 0.4 pounds over the lightweight limit.
Bellator 219: Awad vs. Girtz will be broadcast on Paramount Network at 9 p.m. ET and will stream live on DAZN, while preliminary and post-lim bouts will stream on Bellator.com and globally on the Bellator Mobile App.
