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.
