It looks like it was a rough night for some of the fighters in Muskegon, Michigan. All fighters took to the scales ahead of tomorrow night’s XFC 27 event and it appears weight was an issue. Several fighters came in off the mark by several pounds. Sources close to the situation said the positioning of the scale played a part as well as some of Michigan’s rules as to weight allowance. We learned that as long as you are within 5 pounds of your opponent’s weight the fight will still be approved.
It appears all fights are a go despite the discrepancies. In the main event John Prisco will crown a new featherweight champion when Farkhad Sharipov meets Deivison Ribeiro in the main event. Eric Reynolds will look to climb another step closer to a title shot if he can get past former King of the Cage champion Dom O’Grady.
The main card airs live on AXS TV tomorrow night from the L.C. Walker Arena in Muskegon.
