UFC 104 Weigh-Ins Results: Serious Weight Issues (Updated)
Posted by representingpuroresu on 10/23/2009
Click below for the results from the just-completed UFC 104 weigh-ins, which saw some serious issues on the scales.
Josh Neer, Gleison (Graison) Tibau and Anthony Johnson all missed weight. Neer & Tibau agreed to catch weight, both would’ve had 1 hour otherwise. Johnson apparently knew he wouldn’t make it and notified his opponent in advance. Fight’s on at catch weight but expect Johnson to be fined.
Ryoto (Lyoto) Machida (202.5) vs. Mauricio Rua (204.5)
Ben Rothwell (265) vs. Cain Velasquez (238)
Josh Neer (156.5) vs. Gleison (Graison) Tibau (157)
Spencer Fisher (155) vs. Joe Stevenson (155.5)
Anthony Johnson (176) vs. Yoshiyuki Yoshida (170)
Ryan Bader (205) vs. Red (Eric) Schafer (205.5)
Patrick Barry (237) vs. Antoni Hardonk (249.5)
Yushin Okami (185) vs. Chael Sonnen (185)
Rob Kimmons (185) vs. Jorge Rivera (185)
Razak Al-Hassan (204.5) vs. Kyle Kingsbury (205.5)
Stefan Struve (243.5) vs. Chase Gormley (262)
Update: The fine for Johnson will be 20% of his fight purse. That money will go to Yoshida. Depending on the fight outcome and potential bonuses that will probably be in the range of $5,000-$10,000. But if Johnson gets a bonus, knowing him it would be KO Of The Night, that could be an extra $15-20K going to Yoshida.
