Bellator 208 Weigh-In Video & Results: Card Loses Two Undercard Bouts

By Lucas Grandsire Oct 12, 2018

Bellator MMA returns for the second night in a row as Chael Sonnen takes on Fedor Emelianenko in the main event of Bellator 208, atop a card featuring a host of big names as well as exciting matchups.

The main event is a semifinal of Bellator’s ongoing heavyweight tournament. Sonnen will look to keep the upsets coming, as he defeated the favored and significantly heavier Quinton Jackson in his opening-round match in January via decision. “The Last Emperor” advanced by knocking out former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight champion Frank Mir in a wild 48-second slugfest in his quarterfinal match at Bellator 198 in April.

The co-main event sees former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson take on the heavy-hitting Saad Awad in a fight that may well determine the next challenger for the lightweight title. Before any of the 26 fighters on the card could set foot in the cage, however, all had to stand on the scale.

Bellator 208 takes place tomorrow night in Uniondale, New York, with the prelims starting at 6:30 p.m. ET and the main card at 9 p.m. ET.
