See what I did there? Heavy fine? We’re here all week.
Marcos Rogerio de Lima is going to be a little lighter in the wallet after his trip to Nashville this weekend. He missed weight for his second consecutive fight, hitting the scales at 210 for his fight against Ovince Saint Preux. Typically the athletic commission fines fighters 20 percent of their purse. However, the UFC has some discretion on these things, and they opted to fine him 30 percent, due to his failing in the past as well.
The fight is still on, and de Lima was the only fighter on the card who missed weight. Everyone else was spot on, and the card is all set to go on without a hitch. The Ovince Saint Preux vs. Marcos Rogerio de Lima will now simply be a catchweight fight.
UFC Fight Night 108 is headlined by Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov. You can see the entire card, here.
