Each of the participants for tomorrow’s UFC Fight Night weighed in successfully today in São Paulo, Brazil, including headliners Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida and CB Dollaway.
Renan Barão, who competes in the co-main event against Mitch Gagnon, had to pull out of his last UFC appearance at the last minute due to medical issues as a result of his attempts to cut weight. But unlike that difficult day in August, he had no problems this time — hitting the scales at 136 lbs on his first try.
Only one fighter needed more than one attempt to make weight: Patrick Cummins. The American was weighed at 206.8 for his light heavyweight attraction against Antonio Carlos Júnior, but hit 206 on his second attempt.
