As per the official weigh-ins for the Bellator 299 event, Niedzielski weighed in at 147.8 pounds, exceeding the featherweight limit.

Missing weight can have several consequences in the world of mixed martial arts. Apart from the potential impact on the fighter’s performance and conditioning, there may be financial penalties and repercussions in terms of rankings and future opportunities. It is unclear at this point whether the bout will proceed, as Magomedsharipov has the option to accept the fight at a catchweight, negotiate new terms, or cancel the matchup altogether.

“Weight cutting is an integral part of the sport, and fighters are expected to make weight for the safety and fairness of the fights,” said an official spokesperson from Bellator. “While we understand the challenges involved, it is essential for fighters to prioritize their preparation and weight management to ensure a level playing field for everyone involved.”
