(Updated) UFC 169 Weigh-In Results: Title Fights Set, Lineker Misses Weight on First Attempt
By FCF Staff
UFC 169 will feature not one, but two title fights tomorrow night in Newark, and all four of the bouts’ competitors made weight this afternoon.
Featherweight champion Jose Aldo came in at 145 pounds for his title fight with Ricardo Lamas, while the latter tipped the scales at 144.5
In the headliner, bantamweight champion Renan Barao will take on Urijah Faber, and the vets weighed in at 135 and 134.5 respectively. The two fought before in July, 2012, and Barao took the bout via unanimous decision.
The only fighter who didn’t make weight on their first attempt was flyweight John Lineker, who came in at 127 for his fight with Ali Bagautinov. Lineker, who has missed weight three times during his UFC tenure, has two hours to shed one pound.
