UFC 185 The Title Changes hands; Two new Champions crowned.


It was the event we was all waiting for, UFC 185  where we would get to witness great elite, MMA athletes in a double-header Championship Title Event.

The whole card did not let us down, from the very first opening card right up to Anthony Pettis,  Main Card Title defence fight.

There were far too many standout fighters for me to mention, they all did bring their A Game, with the exceptional few who lost out to what we could only describe, as this is why we love watching MMA, as anything can happen, and did!

Here are the exciting results:

UFC 171 WEIGH-IN RESULTS AND PICTURES INC 2nd/3rd ATTEMPTS!


HENDRICKS LAWLER FACE OFF

DALLAS – All did not go to plan for today’s live  UFC 171 fighter weigh-ins, and three fighters, including headliner Johny Hendricks, were over on their first attempt. However, the main-event fighter made it on his second attempt.

Hendricks initially weighed 171.5 pounds for his bout with Robbie Lawler, which is for the vacant welterweight title. Hedricks had two hours to make the 170-pound limit for the title fight. Seven minutes prior to the deadline, he hit the scale again and successfully made 170 pounds, avoiding a potentially disastrous affair for both him and the UFC.

Although the fighter looked drained on his successful second attempt, he’s now cleared to still fight for the vacant belt.

Preliminary-card fighter  *Renee Forte (157) missed weight and will surrender 20 percent of his purse to his opponent. However, Kelvin Gastelum (171) finally made weight on his third attempt.
