Check out the MMA odds for the fight card before the event goes live tomorrow.
One fighter missed weight today, and one did not weigh in at all. Josh Emmett missed the featherweight limit of 146 pounds when he tipped the scales at 148.5 pounds for his fight against Ricardo Lamas. Also, Pietro Menga will not be weighing in and his fight with Tim Elliott has been cancelled. Elliott did make weight for the fight but when was told that Penga was going to be five pounds over weight, Elliott declined the fight despite knowing he would have received 20 percent of his opponent’s purse.
