    WSOF 8 weigh-in results: Richard Patishnock misses mark for lightweight title fight

    Official fighter weigh-ins for World Series of Fighting 8 took place today, but the main-event lightweight title fight is not yet official.

    Richard Patishnock missed weight for the five-round 155-pound championship bout, coming in at 155.4 pounds on his first attempt. His opponent, Justin Gaethje, was on the mark at 154.6.

    Patishnock was given two hours to cut the additional 0.4 pounds. In title fights, there is no one-pound allowance given to competitors.

    Two other fighters missed weight on their first attempts, as well, though not by large amounts. Tyson Nam was 136.2 pounds for his bantamweight bout against Cody Bollinger, who was 135.6. (Ironically, it is Bollinger whose MMA claim to fame, or infamy, those far is being kicked off Season 18 of “The Ultimate Fighter” for weight issues on the show.)

    It'll be a pretty big disappointment if they end up calling off the title fight, especially if he misses weight by such a small margin.
