WSOF 11 Weigh-Ins; Guillard Returns Way Over Limit, Fitch Under Middleweight Mark


The World Series of Fighting Weigh-Ins kicked off in the St. John Ballroom of the Hilton Hotel in Daytona Beach, FL without too much of a hitch.

Slight snare was caught on the heels of the returning explosive lightweight and maybe most gifted 155 pound competitor, Melvin Guillard.

Melvin came out to his introduction to meet a rather timid audience and asked the question, “Yall ain’t going to clap?” then followed it with, “Man, tough crowd.”

The scales added on to the ridicule.

Melvin hopped on and came in at 159, 4 pounds over the limit and was met with some boos, to which he responded; “Man don’t boo me.”

His opponent JZ Cavalcante came in at a ready 155.6 pounds.

Then in the co-main event, a move up to middleweight for former UFC welterweight aces both came in at well under the 185 pound mark.

Fitch at 183 and Hallman at 181.2

However all is well that ends well and the pair of Lightweights vying for the title in the main event bout came in on weight and ready to compete, the rest of the results are as follows;

Justin Gaethje (154.8) vs. Nick Newell (155) – for lightweight title

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
