UFC Fight Night 70 weigh-in results – Machida vs Romero
UFC Fight Night 70 takes place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, in Hollywood, Florida, Saturday, June 27, but first the fighters must hit the scales 24-hours prior.
Several of the fights were cancelled or pushed to other events last week after Visa issues forced changes to the card.
Due to an issue affecting the Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs visa system and a technical problem with the Consular Consolidated Database, the UFC was unable to secure entry into the country for 12 of its athletes slated to compete.
