Weigh-ins for the big UFC on FOX event in Stockholm, Sweden are in the books, with every athlete on the main card weighing in successfully.
The headliners, Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Johnson, engaged in a brief face-off and shook hands. The Stockholm crowd greeted their native son Gustafsson with a warm welcome, and reacted politely to his American opponent.
Johnson, who has a history of struggling with weight issues, looked relaxed and confident here — not bothering to take off a baseball cap prior to weighing in one pound under the light heavyweight limit.
The only fighter to fail to make weight was Paul Redmond, a late replacement to face Mirsad Bektic in a featherweight contest among the night’s preliminary bouts. Redmond was three pounds over the division limit. The American will re-weigh later and may be subject to a fine, but it’s likely the bout will go on as scheduled.
