There was only one fighter who failed to make weight yesterday at the UFC 159 weigh-ins; welterweight Nick Catone weighed in at 173 lbs and did not re-weigh, thereby losing 20% of his purse. Today it's been confirmed that his fight with James Head is now off, and Catone is currently in the hospital for dehydration. Damon Martin of Bleacher Report tweeted the news earlier this morning:
Nick Catone had to go the hospital with dehydration. His fight with James Head has been cancelled for tonight's #UFC159 card.— Damon Martin (@DamonMartin) April 27, 2013
James Head will receive his show money, but unfortunately for him he will not get to fight this evening.
Catone/Head was slated for the Facebook prelims, so that means UFC 159 soldiers on with 11 fights in total, and presumably this means the start of the card will be pushed from 6:30 PM ET to roughly 7 PM ET.
