(Video) Two Fighters Miss Weight But All Fights Set For UFC Moscow
Both Mairbek Taisumov and Jin Soo Son missed weight this morning at the UFC Moscow official weigh-ins, but thankfully both will still fight tomorrow night in Russia.
Taisumov, who hasn’t fought since UFC Rotterdam when he defeated Felipe Silva via first round KO, came in 5-pounds over the UFC Lightweight limit after tipping the scales at 161-pounds. UFC officials later announced that he would be docked 40% of his fight purse and that his fight with Desmond Green would still take place tomorrow evening.
Son, who will be making his UFC debut on Saturday, came in 1-pound over the UFC bantamweight limit after weighing in at 137-pounds at the Hilton in Moscow this morning. UFC officials announced that Son will be deducted 20% of his fight purse and his fight with Petr Yan will start take place tomorrow.
