Alexa Grasso Misses Weight for UFC Mexico City Co-Main Event

Nearly everyone was on the mark at Friday’s official early weigh-in for Saturday’ UFC Fight Night 114: Pettis vs. Moreno event in Mexico City… save for Alexa Grasso.

With a little over an hour left to weigh-in, Grasso stepped on the scale, which registered 119 pounds. That is a full three pounds over the 116-pound allowed limit for a strawweight non-title fight.

Though missing weight could put a fight in jeopardy, Grasso’s opponent, Randa Markos, agreed to fight her at 119 pounds, keeping their UFC Fight Night 114 co-main event bout intact.

Grasso will be fined 20-percent of her fight purse, which goes to Markos as compensation for Grasso’s failure to meet her obligation on the scale.
