Former UFC Champ Drastically Misses Weight At Today’s UFC Weigh-Ins

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is currently gearing up for another exciting night of fights. That being said, it would appear that of of the event’s competitors missed weight by a rather large amount.

UFC Fight Night 137 is set to go down this Saturday, Sept. 22, from within the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in São Paulo, Brazil. Jimi Manuwa and Glover Teixeira were initially set to headline the fight night.

However, Teixeira and Manuwa have each since been pulled out of the event due to injuries. Consequently, Thiago Santos will now be taking on Eryk Anders in the night’s headliner.

The promotion hosted the official weigh-ins earlier today for the upcoming fight night. Nearly all fighters made weight.

Former UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao hit the scales at a total 141.75 pounds, over five pounds above the division limit. The former title holder is still set to face Andre Ewell. However, Barao will no be forfeiting 30 percent of his purse to his opponent.
