UFC 142 was supposed to be a great experience for Anthony Johnson. A massive welterweight, it was believed that he'd have a simple cut down to middleweight. Unfortunately, when he woke up on Friday, he was unable to move his legs and was advised by the UFC doctor to rehydrate and not go ahead with his final weight cut. He tipped the scales at 197 pounds. Vitor Belfort made weight and agreed to the fight on the stipulation that Anthony Johnson would weigh in at 205 pounds at noon on Saturday. Johnson was able to meet that stipulation and the fight was once again on. Just minutes ago UFC President Dana White made the following tweet:
Vitor just weighed-in at 205.6 and Rumble Johnson just weighed-in at 211.
