Bellator officials held the weigh-ins for Bellator 177 on Thursday. Eduardo “Dudu” Dantas was set to defend his Bellator bantamweight belt against former LFA champ Leandro Higo in the main event of Bellator 177. However, Higo was unable to hit his mark of 135 lbs., and as a result, the five-round title fight has been changed to a three-round non-title fight.
Daniel Weichel vs. John Teixeira in a featherweight bout will serve as the co-main event. Rounding out the main card is Lena Ovchynnikova vs. Helen Harper female flyweight bout and Adam Borics vs. Anthony Taylor in a featherweight.
