The UFC on FOX 26 weigh-in results are in and the card has one less fight.
First, let’s get to the good news. Headliners for tomorrow night’s (Dec. 16) event both made weight. Robbie Lawler clocked in at 170.5 pounds, while dos Anjos tipped the scales at 170 pounds.
Josh Emmett, who stepped up as a late replacement to take on Ricardo Lamas, failed to reach the featherweight limit. He weighed in at 148.5 pounds. Lamas was on target, hitting the 146-pound mark.
Now, on to the bad news. Pietro Menga did not weigh in today as doctors would not clear him to compete. Menga was set to be Tim Elliott’s last minute replacement opponent. Elliott made weight at 125.5 pounds, but he won’t be competing.
