The first weigh-in in MMA Fight Pit history nearly went off without a hitch until controversial Ultimate Fighter alum Junie Browning took to the scale and missed the lightweight mark by more than five pounds despite the unique allowance for competitors to come in two pounds heavy rather than the standard of one.
However, on the positive end of the spectrum, all four men with top billing on the show had no problem coming in on target including Jens Pulver who is making his bantamweight debut at the New Mexico event. Pulver hit 136 on the head while opponent “Ox” Wheeler was a single notch higher at 137 pounds. Meanwhile, hard-hitting light heavyweight Houston Alexander weighed 205.5 pounds with “Razor” Razak Al-Hassan measuring in at 204.
Fans can catch all the action live tonight on PPV starting at 9:00 PM EST.
