Charles Oliveira Still To Fight Ricardo Lamas Despite Huge Weight Miss

Fernanda Prates of MMAJunkie tweeted some news about the Ricardo Lamas vs. Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira fight on Saturday’s UFC Fight Night main card from Mexico City:

Oliveira missed the 146 pound non-title featherweight limit by a whopping nine pounds, weighing in at 155 pounds. While this was a fairly late notice fight, this is the fourth time he’s missed weight at featherweight, so it could very well be the last straw before he’s forced to move back up to lightweight. This is also the second time in three fights that he’s weighed in at over 150 pounds for a 146 pound fight, with the other instance being when he fought Myles Jury. Oddly enough, even with the history of bad weight cuts, Oliveira has also come in at 143 pounds on at least two occasions. Fighters who cut weight being so far under the limit isn’t exactly common, especially at the UFC level.
