UFC Moncton early weigh-in results: Michael Johnson fails to make weight

It sucks when a fighter fails to make weight. It really sucks when that fighter takes a fight on short notice and misses weight. Michael Jonson stepped up on two weeks notice to take on Artem Lobov and without enough time to prepare, Johnson missed the featherweight limit by one pound. However, Artem Lobov not only accepted the fight with Johnson, but he also offered a refund for the fine that Johnson receives.

Artem Lobov, you alright.
