UFC on FX 5 Weigh-Ins: Antonio Silva and Travis Browne On Weight, Dennis Hallman Reportedly Over and Off Card
By FCF Staff
The Ultimate Fighting Championship held the weigh-ins this afternoon in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in advance of the promotion’s latest UFC on FX 5 card tomorrow night. Headliners Travis Browne and Thiago Silva both came in on weight for their heavyweight bout, and proceeded to engage in a rather heated face off.
According to the FUEL TV broadcast, Dennis Hallman was still 7 pounds over for his lightweight tilt with Thiago Tavares prior to the official weigh-ins. The latter apparently agreed to fight Hallman if he could lose 4 more pounds, however, the bout was eventually scrapped. Hallman also missed weight for his UFC 140 bout with John Makdessi.
The only other fighter who didn’t make weight on his first attempt was Bart Palaszewski, who came in one pound over for his featherweight bout with Diego Nunes. The vet has one hour to lose the extra pound.
