Alexander Shlemenko’s next middleweight title defense will move forward as planned, as both “Storm” and challenger Doug Marshall were cleared to compete at Thursday’s Bellator 109 weigh-in.

Shlemenko and Marshall tipped the scales at 184.7 and 184.3 pounds, respectively, ahead of Friday’s main event clash at Sands Casino Event Center in Bethlehem, Pa.

The Spike TV-broadcast main card will also see Alexander Sarnavskiy (155.4) do battle with Will Brooks (156) to determine the Season 9 lightweight tournament winner. Former lightweight title challenger Rick Hawn (170.5) will lock horns with Ron Keslar (170.7) to wrap up the Season 9 welterweight tournament, and UFC veteran Terry Etim (155.5) will clash with Patrick Cenoble (155.4).
