The Ultimate Fighting Championship 67 weigh-ins are in the books and the big news out of Las Vegas is that Travis Lutter, who was set to challenge Anderson Silva for the middleweight title, missed weight. He originally weighed in at 187 pounds, 2 pounds over since title fights must weigh exactly to the division’s limit. Lutter later re-weighed and still missed weight by 1-1/2 pounds, so the fight has been changed to a 3-round non-title bout, leaving the UFC without a championship bout anywhere on the card.


 


In addition to the bout being stripped of title status, Lutter also had to give up a portion of his fight purse, a percentage to Anderson Silva and another portion due to a fine imposed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.


 


Terry Martin also weighed in 2 pounds over, but he only had to cut 1 more pound as non-title bouts have a 1-pound weight allowance. Everyone else made weight.
