The weigh-in for tomorrow night’s UFC Fight Night event in Saitama, Japan is in the books, with all the fighters but one making their contracted limits for the event.
The combatants in the main event, Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson, both easily made the heavyweight (265 lb) limit as expected. Barnett looked leaner than usual, weighing in at 239 pounds.
The only fighter to miss the mark was flyweight Chico Camus, who weighed in at 126.5, or .5 pounds over the limit (fighters are allowed one pound in non-title bout). He will have one hour to make weight, or lose 25% of his purse for the bout.
