Nearly all the fighters for UFC 139 made weight Friday in San Jose, California, with a faulty scale causing issues and two fighters missing weight.
The California State Athletic Commission rep on site had difficulty reading the weights, causing UFC "babysitter to the stars" Burt Watson to become a bit more involved than usual. Shamar Bailey, Nick Pace and Miguel Torres all initially missed weights to varying degrees, but Joe Rogan told the crowd the scale on the stage was reading differently than a backstage scale.
UPDATE 8:10 PM: Pace gave up 20% of his purse before coming out, so he was definitely over. Bailey re-weighed himself afterward and was officially 158 pounds, also forfeiting 20% of his purse. On his third attempt nearly an hour later, Torres made weight.
Nick Pace vs. Miguel Torres (136) Pace was officially six pounds over before he even came out and will forfeit 20% of his purse. Torres initially weighed in at 137 and then 136.5 before making weight at 8:10 PM EST.
Shamar Bailey vs. Danny Castillo (155): Castillo came out in a tear-away tuxedo, Bailey in just boxer briefs. The commission rep was having problems reading the scale and seemed confused, saying and asking Joe Rogan "158 and a half? Is that what that says? Bailey later re-weighed in at 158 officially and was fined 20% of his purse.
