MMA Fighting has Bellator 265 ceremonial weigh-in video for Friday’s event at Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D.
In the main event, two-time heavyweight title challenger Cheick Kongo faces off with veteran Sergei Kharitonov. At Thursday’s official morning weigh-ins, the fighters successfully weighed in under the 266 pound-limit, the maximum allowed for a non-title heavyweight fight.
The originally scheduled co-main event between Jay Jay Wilson and Adam Borics has been cancelled after Wilson missed the featherweight limit by 4.4 pounds (including the one-pound allowance). Borics will be paid his show money.
The Bellator 265 ceremonial are expected to begin at 2 p.m. ET. Watch video above.
