WATCH: Bellator 268 ceremonial weigh-in at 5 pm ET

The Bellator 268 ceremonial weigh-in takes place today at 5 pm ET, from inside the same venue as tomorrow night’s event, the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona. You can watch the final faceoffs before the Oct. 16 show in the embedded video above.

The card is headlined by two massive matchups in the light heavyweight Grand Prix tournament. First, in the co-main event UFC veteran and second-ranked 205-pound fighter, Corey Anderson will battle former two-division champion Ryan Bader in a semifinals scrap. Then in the headliner, fifth-ranked light heavyweight Julius Anglickas jumps in as a replacement for Anthony Johnson to face current division king Vadim Nemkov in a title fight and tournament semifinal bout.

The fight will be former LFA 205-pound titleholder Anglickas’ first Bellator main event and title opportunity. This will be Nemkov’s second defense of the title he won from Bader in August of 2020.

The event kicks off at 7 pm ET with preliminary action on Bellator’s YouTube channel. The main card follows as 10 pm ET and will air exclusively on Showtime.
