What each fighter weighed on fight night

0

In California, fighters get their weight checked the day of their fights — not just when they have to hit their marks on the scale.

In 2017, the California State Athletic Commission implemented a plan to try to reduce excessive weight reduction. In these rules, there was a cap on how much a fighter could earn official weigh-ins in combat.

If a fighter was earning more than 10% before the fight, then the commission could recommend that they move up to a higher weight class. If a fighter won more than 15%, the commission had plans in place to potentially cancel the fights.

At UFC on ESPN 41, which took place last Saturday in San Diego, 10 of the 26 fighters on the card regained more than 10% of their weight. One of those 10 exceeded the 15% threshold. MMA Junkie got a list of fight night weights from CSAC.

Check out the weight gains and percentages of the 26 fighters on the card at Pechanga Arena.
