| January 14, 2012 | Reply

The time has come, all the work has been put in and it’s finally time for UFC 142: Aldo vs. Mendes. The UFC’s second trip to Brazil in just under five months hit a pot hole at yesterdays weigh-ins as co-main event fighter Anthony Johnson massively missing the middleweight limit of 186 lbs. by a staggering 11 pounds. The fight will still take place as a catchweight bout but Johnson will lose 20% of his purse and was forced to weigh-in less than 205 lbs. today.

Aside from the weight issue from the former welterweight, the rest of the UFC 142 card all made weight. The UFC preliminary card will make its debut on FX today with a lone bout streaming on Facebook to kick the night’s action off at 4:30pm PT/7:30pm ET.
