The DREAM.9 weigh-ins took place earlier today in Japan.
All fighters made weight. Minowaman and Sokoudjou are both giving up 100+lbs against their opponents. Canseco’s giving up about 80lbs, and Mousasi’s giving up almost 70lbs to Hunt.
And by the way, Canseco says he’s scared.
“I’m not gonna lie to you; I’m scared,” Canseco said. “This guy is huge. I’m a 44-year-old rookie and have had a lot of challenges in my baseball career. Hopefully, I can do well.”
