Johnson fined 20% of purse during UFC on Versus 2 weigh-ins

The second UFC on Versus event is slated to take place this evening from San Diego Sports Arena and all bouts will take place as scheduled.

The weigh-ins didn’t go off without a hitch however, as welterweight DaMarques Johnson failed to make his contracted weight against Matt Riddle, coming in at 172 lbs after the commission decided it wasn’t safe for him to continue cutting. He will be fined 20% of his purse and allowed to compete.

Headliners Jon Jones and Vladimir Matyushenko both came in at 206 lbs for their light heavyweight showdown.

    Ill start by saying im a big fan of damarques and im 99% positive hes gonna pull off the win here and would love 2 see him get a rematch with wilks. i believe griffin is gonna outpoint gomi on the feet for 15 min 4 a dec. i think okami is gonna prove some ppl wrong and pull off the win here via tko round 2. im a big fan of ellenburger and believe he won that fight with condit and i think hes gonna take out doomsday via dec. 30-27. and i do believe jones will pull off the W but im not counting the janitor out, i wont be all 2 surprised if he pulls off an upset here

    Yeah, most athletic commissions give a 1 pound grace, although I don’t believe they’re required too.
