    Default UFC on FOX 5 weigh-in results: Henderson-Diaz official for title fight (updated)


    MMAjunkie.com

    Three fighters – including main-event title challenger Nate Diaz – failed to hit their weights on their first attempts and were given two hours to cut the additional weight.

    Diaz weighed in at 155.6 pounds for his lightweight title fight against Benson Henderson. For a title fight, there is no one-pound allowance. Diaz initially appeared slightly perplexed that he needed to make 155 on the button for the lightweight title fight. He returned shortly after the official weigh-in event, reportedly after using the bathroom, and weighed 155.2 – still with about 100 minutes on the clock to get to 155.

    On his third attempt, Diaz hit 155 pounds, UFC officials confirmed to MMAjunkie.com. He hit the mark less than an hour after his first attempt.
    The full weigh-in results included:

    MAIN CARD (FOX, 8 p.m. ET)

    Benson Henderson (154.6) vs. Nate Diaz (155.6)*
    Alexander Gustafsson (205.4) vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (205)
    Rory MacDonald (170.2) vs. B.J. Penn (168.2)
    Matt Brown (170.2) vs. Mike Swick (170)

    PRELIMINARY CARD (FX, 5 p.m. ET)

    Yves Edwards (155) vs. Jeremy Stephens (155.8)
    Raphael Assuncao (136.4)+ vs. Mike Easton (135)
    Ramsey Nijem (155.4) vs. Joe Proctor (154.6)
    Daron Cruickshank (155) vs. Henry Martinez (158.8)#
    Marcus LeVesseur (155.4) vs. Abel Trujillo (155.4)
    Nam Phan (145.4) vs. Dennis Siver (146)

    PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook, 4:20 p.m. ET)

    John Albert (136) vs. Scott Jorgensen (135.2)

    * - Diaz was given two hours to cut 0.6 pounds; he hit 155.2 on his second try, then made 155 on his third attempt.
    + - Assuncao was given two hours to cut 0.4 pounds and made weight on his second attempt.
    # - Martinez was given two hours to cut 2.8 pounds, but instead will forfeit 20 percent of his fight purse to Cruickshank.

    I hope Diaz having to cut more doesn't affect his cardio.
