Lake Charles, La. – The Bellator 69 weigh-ins have been completed from Lake Charles, Louisiana in preparation for Bellator’s Friday night event at L’Auberge Casino Resort, which features the Bellator Season 6 Middleweight Tournament Finals between Maiquel Falcao and Andreas Spang. Also, Megumi Fujii will square off against Jessica Aguilar in a women’s feature fight while Ron Sparks will face Kevin Asplund in a heavyweight matchup. Additionally, a highly-anticipated Bellator Season 6 Welterweight Tournament semifinal will take place as Karl Amoussou takes on David Rickels. Both fighters had choice words for their opponent as Rickels began the verbal sparring.
“He can play head games,” Rickels said. “I know he has a heart in there. I’m going to find it and I’m going to crush it.”
The imposing Amoussou stared down his opponent and responded: “I just know I’m going to run right through him. Look at him, he’s ugly. Look at his body and look at my body. I’m going to destroy him.”
The heated rivalry between Maiquel Falcao and Andreas Spang for the Bellator Season 6 Middleweight Tournament Championship was ignited once again by both fighters’ post weigh-in interviews.
With Spang stepping off the scale and telling the L’Auberge Casino Resort crowd to “expect fireworks,” his opponent Falcao responded: “I came to win. If I have to hurt him, I will.”
