I guess the honeymoon is over.
While the early weigh-in procedures have been universally lauded for its benefits to dehydrated fighters (more on that here), things took a turn for the worse earlier today (Fri., July 8, 2016) when the cast of UFC 200 took the scale in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Full UFC 200 weigh in results and video right here.
Former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks once again failed to make the 170-pound limit for his welterweight showdown opposite Kelvin Gastelum, which means “Bigg Rigg” will forfeit big bucks — to the tune of 20 percent of his fight purse.
That’s not all.
Reigning women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate, who became the UFC 200 headliner when Jon Jones was bounced for USADA issues, barely made the weigh-in time limit. To help her cause, “Cupcake” dropped her wrapper to get under the championship limit.
With literally no time left, Miesha Tate hits 134.5. Whew. Needed the towel. Crazy tension in this room. pic.twitter.com/NHjiKia0Nu
