UFC 185 weigh-in results: All but one make weight
The UFC 185 weigh-ins took place today at the Arena at Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas and all fighters but one made weight. The card which features two title bouts, one in the men’s lightweight and one in the women’s strawweight divisions is arguably one of the most stacked cards in recent memory.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk, the challenger for the women’s strawweight title is known for getting in the face of her opponent’s, a mind game if you will, and she did it again today, but not before she handed Carla “Cookie Monster” Esparza a large cookie to eat after weigh-ins. If you listened to the Split Decision MMA podcast interview yesterday with Esparza she told the guys that Jedrzejczyk would have to duck down to look in her eyes because she is much shorter than opponent. Jedrzejczyk did just that, stooping down below the eye level of the champion.
