The weigh-ins for UFC 85: Bedlam took place this morning in London, England. All fighters made weight except for one. Thiago Alves came in four pounds heavy at 174lbs (technically three lbs over; 1 pound allowance in non-title fights). His opponent Matt Hughes has agreed to take the fight at a catchweight of 174lbs. Nothing was mentioned but it is likely Alves will have to forfeit a percentage of his purse to Hughes for the overage.
I can’t remember the last time a fighter besides Gina Carano missed weight by four pounds. Alves did take the fight on short notice, but he still should have had enough time to get the weight off.
