Thiago Alves Pulls A Carano, Misses Weight By Four Pounds

Thiago AlvesThe 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.

The weigh-in results:

Thiago Alves (174) VS Matt Hughes (170)
Jason Day (184) VS Michael Bisping (184)
Mike Swick (170) VS Marcus Davis (170)
Thales Leites (185) VS Nate Marquardt (185)
Fabricio Werdum (247) VS Brandon Vera (228)
Martin Kampmann (186) VS Jorge Rivera (185)
Thiago Tavares (154.5) VS Matt Wiman (155)
Roan Carneiro (171) VS Kevin Burns (170)
Luiz Cane (204) VS Jason Lambert (205)
Jess Liaudin (169) VS Paul Taylor (169)
Eddie Sanchez (244) VS Antoni Hardonk (247)
