Three Fighters Miss Weight For UFC Sao Paulo
One day before the UFC’s return to Sao Paulo, Brazil for UFC Fight Night 164, all 24 fighters slated for the card took to the scale.
While all 24 took to the scale, not all 24 made weight, as Isabella de Padua was five and a half pounds over the 125 pound contracted weight for her fight, while Tracy Cortez and her opponent Vanessa Melo were a half-pound over their contracted weight of 135-pounds.
The two-featured fights on the card are on-track as Jan Blachowicz and Jacare Souza were on-weight for their light heavyweight main event and Shogun Rua and Paul Craig are on-weight for their co-main event also at light heavyweight.
