UFC on FOX 26 had two fighters miss weight. One fight has been scrapped.
This morning the fighters involved with UFC on FOX 26 weighed in officially. Both feature fight participants Robbie Lawler and Rafael dos Anjos made weight without issue. Now that fight can go off and crown a new number one contender. In the co-main event, Josh Emmett failed to reach the Featherweight limit and weighed in 3 and a half pounds over. That fight will still take place, but Josh will be fined a percentage of his purse.
However preliminary fighter Pietro Menga, who was a late replacement to face Tim Elliott did not make weight and in fact, never stepped on a scale. He was reportedly five plus pounds over and began to have physical issues associated with the cut. He was forced to give up altogether and his fight with Elliott has been scrapped at this point.
