Kevin Lee hit the scales a little north of 155, but Barboza going forward with the fight.
It’s always something these days. The Fight Night 128 Weigh-ins went down this morning. The UFC will be airing a pretty exciting card tomorrow night, but the main event nearly went up in smoke on the scales. In the feature fight, Edson Barboza meets Kevin Lee. Kevin Lee came in at 157 pounds, a full 1 pound over his allotted limit. While the fight will still go forward, Lee has been penalized 20 percent of his fight purse.
Aspen Ladd also showed up to the dance a big north of her weight class. She weighed in at 137.8, for a contracted fight at 135 pounds. As of this writing, it is unknown as to whether a deal will be reached for her fight with Leslie Smith to continue. UFC competitors who have come in heavy are 9-1 in their last 10, so there’s plenty to think about if you’re Smith.
Before he even attempted to make weight, Magomed Bibulatov was declared unfit to compete and his fight with Ulka Sasaki was scrapped from the card. He seemingly tweaked a previous back injury forcing him from the card. The full results from the Weigh-ins are available below.
