The Bellator 262 weigh-ins made one title fight official on Thursday morning before the action hits the cage on Friday night.
Women’s flyweight champion Juliana Velasquez (11-0) will defend her belt in the main event against Denise Kielholtz (6-2). Preceding the title fight on the card is the return of Matt Mitrione (13-8) who takes on Tyrell Fortune (10-1) in the co-main event.
All fighters made weight on Thursday morning in Unvasville, CT, although preliminary card flyweight Diana Avsaragova needed some extra time, and a towel, to hit the 126lb non-title limit. The Russian fighter wound up weighing in just in the nick of time, but she did successfully make weight in the end. Johnny Soto also needed a couple of tries, but did hit the featherweight limit.
