UFC on FOX 8 Weigh-In Results: Flyweight title-fight good to go with Johnson-Moraga both making weight

The time has once again arrived for free MMA on network television courtesy of UFC‘s deal with FOX. Tomorrow night, flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will put his gold up for grabs against rising star John Moraga at UFC on FOX 8 with other notable bouts including Robbie Lawler-Bobby Voelker, Michael Chiesa-Jorge Masvidal, and Rory MacDonald-Jake Ellenberger.

Of course, before things become official, Johnson and company will have to step on a scale and hit their required weight-related marks. While the bulk of the competitors did just that, three fighters were over including lightweight Tim Means who clocked in at a whopping 160 pounds for his undercard outing against Danny Castillo! Means was fined 20% of his purse for the infraction, as was John Albert for similar behavior, while Jorge Masvidal made weight after attempting to a second time.

A full rundown of UFC on FOX 8 weights can be found below:

John Albert (137 lbs) vs. Yaotzin Meza (136 lbs)
Aaron Riley (156 lbs) vs. Justin Salas (155 lbs)
Julie Kedzie (135 lbs) vs. Germaine de Randamie (135 lbs)
Ed Herman (186 lbs) vs. Trevor Smith (185 lbs)
Yves Edwards (155 lbs) vs. Daron Cruickshank (153 lbs)
Melvin Guillard (155 lbs) vs. Mac Danzig (155 lbs)
Danny Castillo (155 lbs) vs. Tim Means (160 lbs)
Jorge Masvidal (155 lbs) vs. Michael Chiesa (155.5 lbs)

    Per UFC’s twitter, Masvidal and Means wont reweight and take penalties. Also did Masvidal try to get them to force chiesa to shave his beard, because he tweeted saying he talked to the WAAC and they said the beard can stay.

    Maybe its WASAC? maybe just WSAC? Whatever washington’s athletic committee’s acronym is

    The way Albert was limping after that it looks like he hurt his knee or ankle which would explain why he gave up on that triangle and just sorta turtled up. Great job by Meza to capitalize on it though.

    Annnnd the fb feed is down. Pretty sure I’ve missed at least the first round of the Riley/Salas fight which was one of the ones I really wanted to see. Good job fb. Dicks.

    Unless Julie does something, Germaine has this one 29-28.

    That fight was much closer than I thought it’d be after that first round. I still think Germaine takes it.

    This has my early vote for FotN. Not that technical, but I’ve always loved Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em robots.
