HOUSTON -- Kimbo Slice and Dada 5050 didn't get much of a chance for a staredown at Thursday's Bellator 149 weigh-ins, with Bellator president Scott Coker keeping distance between the two heavyweight rivals. But that didn't stop either man from delivering one final parting message.
"This fight is bigger than me," Dada 5000, whose real name is Dhafir Harris, said after meeting the heavyweight limit at 265 pounds.
"I'm just a representative for the movement. This is to everybody out there who believes. I coming out here and as a token of my appreciation, I sacrifice to you guys tomorrow night: Kimbo Slice."
"I going to enjoy kick this fools ass, man," Slice responded, pointing to Harris after tipping the scales at a trimmer 232 pounds. "I'm going to enjoy this. I'm like a gator. I'm going to kill you with a smile, bro."
Gracie, garbed in his trademark gi, weighed in at 190.8 pounds, while Shamrock came in nearly 10 pounds heavier at 201.2 pounds. The two legends were required to be within 15 pounds of each other in order to make the contest official
