UPDATE: Watch the weigh-ins on Periscope.
It’s almost here. The trilogy matchup between Royce Gracie and Ken Shamrock is almost here! That’s your Bellator 149 main event tomorrow night at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX. Gracie won the first fight and drew the rematch, so will a 51-year-old Ken Shamrock finally break through and get a win over his rival? We’ll soon find out. The co-main event of tomorrow’s show pits Kimbo Slice against Dada 5000, both of whom starred at yesterday’s presser.
Before we get to the fights ahead we have to make sure they’re all on course to make weight. On the plus side, because Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie is openweight, it’s impossible for them to miss weight.
