Silva misses weight for tomorrow's Bellator title fight



Rafael Silva weighed in at 136.9 pounds, or 1.9 pounds above the allowable 135 for what was scheduled for a five-round Bellator interim bantamweibght title fight against Joe Warren in the main event for tomorrow night's show at Revel in Atlantic City.

Silva will be given time to cut the rest of the weight.  Warren weighed 134.6 pounds.

In addition, Sam Oropeza, in a welterweight tournament semifinal fight against Andrewy Koreshkov, weighed 172.4 pounds, and would have to make 171 or forfeit any chance of making it to the finals.

Both were given one more hour to make weight.
