The fighters for Saturday’s CBS-EliteXC Saturday Night Fights weighed in on Friday outside the Prudential Center, where the event will take place, in Newark, N.J.
Despite most fighters making weight, one the most notable did not. Gina Carano, contracted to fight Kaitlin Young at a weight of 140 pounds, weighed in at 144.5 pounds. Since the bout is not a title fight, it will be allowed to take place, but Carano will have to forfeit 12.5 percent of her purse to Young as a penalty.
Young weighed in at 140.5 pounds, which is allowable as there is a one-pound tolerance for non-title bouts.
The event’s only championship clash is between current middleweight champion Robbie Lawler and challenger Scott Smith. Both fighters weighed in at 184.5 pounds.
