Last night the fighters for tonight’s Bellator 100 stepped onto the scales with all 24 fighters making weight. The historic 100th event for Bellator takes places tonight from the Grand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix, Arizona and features an all welterweight main card on Spike TV.
Two fighters didn’t make weight on their first attempt and one of them even got tossed off the stage ahead off tomorrows UFC 160 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The main scale for today’s UFC on FX 8 weigh-ins must have been slightly off from the one backstage because several of the fighters needed the towel in order to make weight. Factor in the handful of fighters that took an inordinately long time to get on the scale and today’s festivities seemed to go on forever.
A handful of fighter needed the towel to make-weight and only welterweight Nick Catone missed weight for tomorrow’s UFC 159. Catone did not attempt to drop the extra weight so he will be fined 20% of his purse but will still face James head on the preliminary portion of the card.
Due to a previously scheduled Arena Football game at the HP Pavilion, today’s UFC on FOX 7 weigh-ins were held less than a mile away at the California Theater. The small theater was completely filled with cheering fans and all the fighters they came to see made weight.
While most of you were at work today the fighters for tomorrow’s UFC on FUEL TV 9 hit the scales today on Stockholm, Sweden. All 26 fighters made weight without issue this morning and are set to step into the Octagon tomorrow morning.
Three fighters missed weight on their first try at today’s pre-fight weigh-ins for tomorrows UFC on FOX 5. The three will have two hours to shed off those final tough pounds, but for one of them it could mean whether or not a title is one the line.
The UFC is in Minneapolis, Minnesota this weekend for Tomorrow’s UFC on FX 5 event and today all but two of the fighters stepped onto the scale. Yes I said two fighters did not weigh-in today and that is because Dennis Hallman was so far over the limits that his fight with Thiago Tavares was scrapped.
