Freire and Borics will square off for the featherweight title in the Bellator 286 main event on Saturday night in Long Beach, CA. In the co-main event, former featherweight champion AJ McKee makes his lightweight debut against Spike Carlyle.
The majority of Bellator 286 fighters made weight without issues on Friday. However, Carlyle missed weight by just over 1.5lbs, while lightweight Dominic Clark weighed in three pounds over and opted against a second attempt.
Both headliners, Freire and Borics, made the 145lb championship limit without any troubles. Carlyle will be fined an undisclosed amount for missing weight but will still battle McKee on Saturday as scheduled.
