The weigh-in for tomorrow’s UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Thatch in Broomfield, Colorado, aka UFC Fight Night 60, is in the books — with all but two of the main card fighters ready to go for tomorrow’s event.
Of the two, one was particularly egregious: Patrick Walsh, who was a full five pounds over the middleweight limit at 191.5 (fighters in non title bouts are allowed one pound past the limit). He will try again and must make weight within two hours, or face a fine.
Flyweight Chris Kelades, who will fight in the opening bout on the main card, weighed in at 127, or one pound over. The Canadian looked shaky as he stepped on the scale — eventually disrobing completely. He will also try and weigh in later tonight.
Lightweight Michel Prazeres needed to disrobe as well, but was successful.
Also, one prelim fighter, James Moontasri, weighed in over, at 158, for his fight to be contested at the lightweight limit. He will try again later tonight.
The announcement was made prior to the event by Karyn Bryant that the scheduled Nik Lentz vs. Levan Makashvili bout at featherweight, to be held among the event’s preliminary bouts, had been scrapped — with Lentz said to have fallen ill with flu symptoms. This marks the second time in the last year that Lentz has seen a bout cancelled only a day prior. At UFC Fight Night 50, his opponent Charles de Oliveira was not cleared due to illness.
