On Wednesday during the official weigh-ins for the PFL’s return to ESPN+, veteran fighter Ronny Markes would tip the scales nearly seven pounds over the 205 pound limit for his first fight of the season.
Markes, who was a middleweight in the UFC, weighed in at 211.8 pounds prior to his fight with Sigi Pesaleli on Thursday at the Nassau Coliseum.
Markes will be allowed to fight, but will not be allowed any points towards a playoff spot with a win, and his opponent, Pesaleli has been given an automatic three points towards the $1 million playoff.
