UFC’s Scale Nearly Falls Off Stage, Tecia Torres Nearly Falls Off With It | Replay

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be heading to Detroit, Michigan on Saturday, Dec. 2, for the mixed martial arts promotions latest big event. Inside the Little Caesars Arena, the UFC will be hosting UFC 218. With the event only a day away, the ceremonial weigh-ins for the event went down today. That being said, there was a small incident in which the weigh-in scale almost went down the stage.

Earlier today, fighters stepped on the scale for the official weigh-ins. In the end, each competitor made weight for the highly anticipated fight card.

On the night’s card, Tecia Torres will be going toe-to-toe with Michelle Waterson in a war for division dominance. That being said, Torres nearly had an accident at today’s ceremonial weigh-ins.

Torres stepped onto the scale with confidence, but the scale began to physically roll away from the fighter and towards the edge of the elevated stage. Luckily, Torres was able to leap off the scale and an official was able to grab the scale before it plummeted off the stage.

Now injury free, Torres and “Karate Hottie” are set to throw down at Saturday’s exciting event. Check out the unexpected incident in the videos below:

Here is another angle of the moment:

“The Tiny Tornado” is now on a two fight winning streak in her mixed martial arts career. Most recently, the fighter earned a submission win over Juliana Lima at The Ultimate Fighter 25 finale.

Michelle “Karate Hottie” Waterson is currently coming off of a loss. Waterson went toe-to-toe with Rose Namajunas, who is now the reigning strawweight champion, at UFC on FOX 24. Namajunas earned a second round submission victory over her opponent. Now Waterson will be looking to get inside the winning column as she faces off against “The Tiny Tornado” at UFC 218 on Saturday.

In the night’s main event, UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway will face off against former champion Jose Aldo in a featherweight title rematch.

“Scarface” and Holloway first battled it out at UFC 212. Holloway unified his interim title with a big TKO victory over Aldo. However, after Frankie Edgar pulled out of UFC 218’s main event due to an injury, Aldo stepped up on short notice to face off for the title once more.
