The Season Eight event will feature the opening round of the lightweight quarterfinals but has seen one change after a knee injury forced main event when Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Freire off the card. His opponent Guillaume DeLorenzi (155.2) will now meet prelim fighter Saad Awad (156) in the tournament.
The new main event will see returning tournament competitors Lloyd Woodard (154.2) take on David Rickels (155.4). The other tournament pairings include matches between Thiago Michel (154.6) vs. Alexander Sarnavskiy (155.2) and Will Brooks vs. Ricardo Tirloni.
Brooks and Tirloni did not weigh-in during the Wednesday’s live event and will hit the scales later this evening.
The Soaring Eagle Resort & Casino is set to host Bellator 87 which will see the main card air live on Spike TV at 10pm EST (7pm PST). Preliminary matches will stream live on the net at Spike.com beginning at 8pm EST.
