Fighter Nearly Faints At UFC Argentina Weigh-Ins


On Friday, the UFC held the official weigh-ins for UFC Argentina, set to take place on November 17th at the Parque Roca Arena in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Coming off a marijuana suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Cynthia Calvillo would come in three pounds over the strawweight limit at 118 pounds. Calvillo was barely able to stand while on the scale, but per the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission’s doctors, she is medically fit to compete on Saturday night.

“She did an evaluation and everything is alright,” CABMMA COO Cristiano Sampaio said. “She will rest now, hydrate, eat, and then she will be ready.”

Calvillo as of this post is still on the card and set to face Brazil’s Poliana Botelho, who came in at 115.5 pounds.
