Bellator 137: Halsey vs Grove goes down at Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, Calif, and will be headlined by a middleweight title fight between champion Brandon Halsey and title challenger Kendall Grove. Halsey weighed-in 3.1 lbs over, and consequently Grove is the only fighter who can leave the event as champion. If Halsey does manage to win, he will be forced to vacate the belt.
Meanwhile in the co-main event, a bantamweight battle will go on as planned between former 135-pound champion Eduardo Dantas (16-4) and a streaking Mike Richman (18-5), despite Richman also missing weight.
