Two miss weight, one bout scrapped during UFC Fight Night 18 weigh-ins

Jeremy Stephens and Gleison Tibau both missed weight for their lightweight bout against one another. Stephens came in at 158 pounds while Tibau tipped the scales at 156.5 pounds. The absolute limit for the weight class is 156 pounds. Both men have since agreed to a catchweight bout at 158 pounds.

The middleweight bout between Steve Stenbeiss and Ryan Jensen was cancelled. Multiple sources are reporting that the bout was removed from the card at the last second because of Jensen’s admitted use of the prescription drug Adderall which caused an issue with him getting medically approved.

All other fighters made weight for the event that will take place tonight at the Sommet Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

The weigh-ins were relatively uneventful with the exception of some brief fireworks during the Junie Browning vs. Cole Miller stare down. Miller had some choice words for Browning, and UFC president Dana White had to step in between the two when Miller advanced towards Browning. Browning was surprisingly calm during the entire episode.

Carlos Condit (170.5) vs. Martin Kampmann (170)
