UFC Early Weigh-Ins Could Be Eliminated

The UFC early weigh-ins could soon be eliminated. Since the decision to allow fighters to weigh-in in the early hours of the morning, we have seen countless athletes miss weight and be ruled medically unfit to compete. As a result, UFC president Dana White says that the early weigh-ins could be removed altogether.
White addressed the issue on the latest edition of his UFC Unfiltered podcast.
“I do think it’s that and guess what? “We’re getting rid of it,” White said on the latest episode of his podcast. “We’re looking at taking back the weigh-ins to the way they used to be so that when the guys weigh-in there at the fight, that will be it. That will be the real weigh-in.
“I believe that any time you change something, everybody looks to take advantage of any situation. I think that when we started doing morning weigh-ins it was very good. Everybody was making weight and everything was going great, but then everybody started cutting it closer, closer and closer thinking that they can put on more weight because they have more time to recover. “The reality is it f***ed everything up. We’re looking to going back to 4pm weigh-ins. Those will be the real weigh-ins.”
The hope is that fighters will be healthier in their weight cuts and that fewer fights will fall apart in the hours before they are scheduled.
