It seems like there’s a lot of tension in the air, ahead of Saturday’s Bellator London card, as Mike Shipman and Fabian Edwards almost had their bout at the card’s weigh-ins…

Shipman and Edwards try to throw hands…

As you can see by watching the clip below, Edwards and Shipman had to be separated after their faceoff didn’t go too well. Thankfully, enough people intervened before things really went off the rails.

It marks the second time this week that there was an incident at a Bellator function. Prior to the card’s media day, backstage, James Gallagher reportedly went after Mike Kimbel for comments the latter allegedly made about his mother.
