The Strawweight Is A Lightweight


You know, if someone can barely stand because they’re so weak at a mixed martial arts weigh-in, you might want to consider cancelling, or at least, postponing the fight.

Cynthia Calvillo, aided by two female aides, struggled to walk to the podium and stand on a scale today to weigh-in for tomorrow night’s UFC fight against opponent Poliana Botelho. The two women are fighting in the UFC Argentina draw in the strawweight division. Obviously cutting weight, Calvillo still missed her goal, clocking in at 118 pounds in a division with an 116 pound limit. Because of this, she will be fined 20% of her earnings. Talk about insult to injury.

We hope Calvillo is downing some cheeseburgers and milkshakes at this very moment…
