There was a frightening moment at the UFC Vegas 22 weigh-ins just now.

Julija Stoliarenko, a former Invicta FC bantamweight champion, stepped on the scale looking to make 135 lbs for her fight with Julia Avila. However, while an official attempted to weigh her, Stoliarenko began wobbling and then fell back off of the scales.

The Schmo captured the whole thing on video:

After being attended by officials Stoliarenko stepped on the scales again. She made weight at 135.5 lbs and posed for a picture. Stoliarenko then seemed somewhat disorientated and stumbled off the scale for a second time, where she was caught by a UFC employee. Stoliarenko then slumped to the ground and appeared to to lose consciousness and convulse.

After she regained consciousness she sat up and drank water before being removed on a stretcher.

It is highly unlikely she will appear at UFC Vegas 22 versus Julia Avila tomorrow night.
