UFC Flyweight Ian McCall hit the scales at 126 pounds at yesterday's official weigh ins for UFC on FX 3 at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida for his bout against Demetrious Johnson tonight. Yet within hours of making weight, McCall was posting on the UG that he had already gained back almost 25 pounds:
gotta LOL @ my weight right now hahaha

I just stepped on the scale at 150.5 with sweats and a shirt on.. i'd say i gained a few lbs since the weigh ins hahaha!
For those keeping track, the weight limit for Bantamweight is 135 pounds, Featherweight is 145 pounds and Lightweight is 155 pounds. McCall may weigh in as a Flyweight but he'll step into the cage too heavy to fight two weight classes up.
This is bad news for Johnson who was a small bantamweight and is said to cut very little weight before fighting. I would love to know fight time weights in every UFC fight.
