The weigh-in event for tomorrow’s Invicta FC 14 show took place today in Kansas City, and it was not without a surpise or two.
Both combatants in the main event, the promotion’s bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger and her challenger, Pannie Kianzad struggled to make the contracted 135 lb. limit.
Evinger eventually made the mark on a second try, but Kianzad couldn’t — so tomorrow’s bout will be a non-title, catch-weight affair.
The co-main event also had a fighter fail — this time at strawweight. DeAnna Bennett weighed in at 117.4, or 1.4 pounds over the limit. Katja Kankaanpaa hit the mark at 115.6 lbs.
Finally, an undercard fighter, Rosa Acevedo, missed the mark for flyweight. Her bout against J.J. Aldrich will also be held at a catchweight.
All three fighters who missed weight will each be fined 25% of their purse.
Full video of the weigh-in event is below. Invicta FC 14 will air live tomorrow night at 8pm ET, 5pm PT on UFC Fight Pass.
