The weigh-ins are complete for tomorrow’s edition of UFC Fight Night in Porto Alegre, Brazil — with the main card fighters all ready to go.
One of the preliminary bouts was cancelled however, due to a medical issue. TJ Waldbeger, who was scheduled to face Wendell Oliveria in a welterweight contest to be televised on FOX Sports 1 tomorrow, is said to have passed out while trying to make weight today. David Doyle of MMA Fighting has reported that both Waldberger and Oliveira will be paid their “show money.”
Frank Mir, who will fight in the main event against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva tomorrow, weighed in at 261 lbs., or four pounds heavier than his last UFC appearance in February 2014. Prior to that, he was 248 pounds for a 2013 bout against Josh Barnett.
Silva, who generally weighs in at or around the heavyweight limit of 265 lbs., weighed in at 264 lbs.
