As Japan weathers the typhoon, HERO’S is getting ready for its ninth installment, as the weigh-ins and press conference were held at the TBS TV station on Monday. All of the fighters except for Shuya Arimura and Ralek Gracie showed up to weigh in. Arimura will be weighing in tomorrow, as he apparently had to work today, and Gracie was still slightly overweight, so he will also weigh-in tomorrow.


Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro, who is the #6 lightweight in the MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings, weighed in originally at 70.2 kilograms (155 pounds) and was re-weighed shortly thereafter, making weight at 70.0 kilograms (154 pounds).


The 154-pound tournament will start tomorrow, beginning a storm of its own.  Whether people will brave the typhoon tomorrow to see the fights will be another story.
