Roberto Pastuch weighed in on 74 kg, 4 kg over the agreed weight class, lightweight -70,3 kg, and gained additional 300 gr, to 74,3 kg, after 2,5 hours dispense time to make weight. The doctor didn’t allow him to cut weight anymore, and Arman agreed to take the fight in 76 kg instead, but Roberto cancelled the fight because he didn’t feel well. This is the reason to the cancellation of this bout.
