By FCF Staff
Here are the official weigh-in results for tomorrow night’s World Series of Fighting event in Hollywood, Florida, which will feature Justin Gaethje battling Rich Patishnock in the main event.
The bout is set to determine the promotion’s inaugural, lightweight champion, however, Patishnock came in slightly overweight on his first attempt. Patishnock came in at 155.4 pounds, but since it is a title fight, he is not allowed one pound leeway. As a result, the 6-1 fighter has two hours to cut .4 pounds.
The 10-0 Gaethje, meanwhile, weighed in at 154.6.
Tomorrow’s WSOF 8 event will be hosted by the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, and the main card will be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network.
