UFC Vegas 62: Grasso vs. Araujo Weigh-In Results
MMA News is the place to be for the official weigh-in results for UFC Vegas 62: Grasso vs. Araujo. You can find the results of each fighter’s weigh-in below.
There was one major cancellation on the main card, with Askar Askarov vs. Brandon Royval cancelled due to weight-cutting issues from Askarov. You can find Royval’s reaction to the grim news below.
“Woke up at 127… before I started the weight cut I heard my opponents not going to make weight. They turned down a catch weight, so it looks like the fight is off. Heartbroken but thank you @tylermintonnutrition for another easy weight cut we stay professional on our end.”
Another flyweight, CJ Vergara, also had issues on the scale. Vergara came in three pounds over the flyweight limit for his bout against Tatsuro Taira. That bout will proceed as originally planned, with Vergara relinquishing 30% of his fight purse.
