Bellator 279 weigh-in results (4 p.m. ET)


HONOLULU – MMA Junkie was on scene and reported from Friday’s official Bellator 279 fighter weigh-ins.

The weigh-ins took place at the Bellator host hotel in San Jose, Calif. The nearby Neal S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu hosts Saturday’s event, which has a main card on Showtime following prelims on MMA Junkie. It is the second of back-to-back shows in Honolulu.

Among those who weighed in were women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg (25-2 MMA, 4-0 BMMA) and Arlene Blencowe (15-8 MMA, 8-4 BMMA), who meet in the main event rematch, and Juan Archuleta (25-3 MMA, 7-2 BMMA) and Raufeon Stots (17-1 MMA, 5-0 BMMA), who fight for the interim bantamweight title.

All four title fight competitors made weight early in the window. Bantamweight grand prix competitors Patchy Mix (15-1 MMA, 4-1 BMMA) and Kyoji Horiguchi (29-4 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) also hit the appropriate marks for their five-round bout.

One prelim fighter missed weight, despite multiple attempts. Promotional newcomer Whittany Pyles (3-4 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) settled on 1.4 pounds over the flyweight limit for her bout vs. Sumiko Inaba (3-0 MMA, 3-0 BMMA).
