The massive welterweight failed to make his contracted weight limit of 170 pounds, and had already notified his opponent Yoshiyuki Yoshida prior to stepping onto the scales. When it was all said and done Johnson weighed in at the 176 pound mark, and will most likely end up surrendering a sizable chunk of his purse to Yoshida for the foul.
