Results from Saturday’s World Extreme Cagefighting weigh-in:
With two title belts on the line, the weigh-in for Sunday’s World Extreme Cagefighting card in Las Vegas provided some last-minute buzz.
Carlos Condit, defending his welterweight title against Brock Larson, said that he expects his challenger to give him a good contest when the two lock horns in the main event.
“(He’s) a tough dude,” Condit said. “I plan on knocking Brock Larson’s ass out.”
While the two were cordial enough at the weigh in and obligatory stare-down for photographers, Larson wasn’t short of confidence either.
“I trained to go the distance,” Larson said. “Lots of cardio, there’s a chance it’s going five five-minute rounds.”
While weigh-ins typically are a mix of bottled-up tension and relief when fighters make weight, this afternoon’s event at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino wasn’t without a little dust-up. Lightweights Sherron “Rob Roy” Leggett and Jamie “The Worm” Varner had to be separated after Varner charged Leggett as he waited on the other side of the stage for the staredown, as Varner got off the scale. The two joined foreheads, pushing together, and later got in one another’s faces again before cooler heads prevailed.
