Daniel-Cormier
(Former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier)

SciFighting.com reported that all but one fighter for UFC 192 Saturday night had made weight earlier. However after being called out by a loyal fan via Facebook, they made note that in fact 2 fighters came in over weight.

Now we had Francisco Trevino coming in at 160 pounds and relinquished 20% of his appearance purse to Sage Northcutt. MMAWeekly reported that 1 fighter,  Adriano Martins came in overweight, yet had Adriano listed at a legal 156 pounds and didn’t report on Trevino being over but had him listed at 160.

“Prelim fighter Adriano Martins missed weight by four pounds and did not attempt a second weigh-in. His fight with Islam Makhachev is still on, but Martins forfeited 20-percent of his show money for missing weight.

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.
