One of the most star-studded UFC on FX cards thus far is set to unfold tomorrow night from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The lineup is headlined by heavyweight action between seasoned scrapper Antonio Silva and unbeaten up-and-comer Travis Browne with a ton of other notable bouts scheduled such as Jeremy Stephens-Yves Edwards, Danny Castillo-Michael Johnson, Thiago Tavares-Dennis Hallman, John Dodson-Jussier Formiga, Jacob Volkmann-Shane Roller, Diego Nunes-Bart Palaszewski, and Jake Ellenberger-Jay Hieron.
Before the competitors take to the cage and lock horns they’ll have to overcome the adversity of making their required weight limits. Fighters will step on the scale this afternoon at 5:00 PM EST and, as usual, Five Ounces of Pain will be providing weights as they’re revealed from the stage.
Dennis Hallman and Thiago Tavares did not weigh in, and the fight is off. Hallman was 7 pounds over weight, and Tavares agreed to take the fight if Hallman got with in 3 pounds. Hallman agreed, but didn’t lose anymore weight. Tavares did make weight, and will be awarded his show money.
