A big weight miss has left Friday’s Bellator 264 event with eight fights.

MMA Fighting confirmed with Mohegan Tribe director of athletic regulation Mike Mazzulli that a lightweight bout between Justin Montalvo and Kendly St. Louis has been cancelled after St. Louis missed weight by 6.5 pounds (including the one-pound allowance for non-title bouts) at Thursday’s official Bellator 264 weigh-ins.

The cancellation was first reported by MMA Junkie.

Montalvo successfully weighed in at 155.75 pounds. It is not yet known whether Montalvo will still receive his show purse with his bout being removed from Friday’s lineup.

This was to be the Bellator debut for both Montalvo and St. Louis. Montalvo sports a 2-0 record in MMA with finishes in both of his pro appearances, while St. Louis (3-4) has lost three of his past four fights.
