UFC Nashville weigh-in results and video: Thompson 170.5, Pettis 171; Pena misses by 2.5 lbs

Only one fighter missed weight at UFC Nashville, and it’s the one who made the curious decision to drop a weight class.

The UFC Nashville official weigh-ins have wrapped up, and both headliners are on weight for Saturday’s main event. Stephen Thompson came in at 170.5 lbs for his showdown with Anthony Pettis, whose welterweight debut sees him weigh 171 lbs.

Only one fighter missed weight, and that’s 6’3” Luis Pena, aka “Violent Bob Ross.” For some reason he felt he needed to ditch lightweight and go to featherweight, and his first attempt at that cut went poorly. He weighed 148.5 lbs, 2.5 lbs over the non-title limit for the division, so his bout with Steven Peterson will be a catchweight. It’s going to cost Pena 30% of his purse, though.

No ceremonial weigh-ins this time around, so you can watch the official weigh-in highlights at the top of the page. You can see the weigh-in faceoffs in the clip below.
