HAYWARD, Wis. — One after another, an impressive line of middleweights made weight for Extreme Challenge 63, which is being held tonight at LCO Casino.
Headliners Dave Menne (185) and Ed Herman (184) were the first to step on the scale followed by fighters competing in the 8-man tournament.
The rest of the lineup consisted of: Joey Guel (185), Damarcus Johnson (185), Brock Larson (184.6), Ryan McGivern (184.6), Tom Jones (184.6), Ryan Jensen (185), Neil Rowe (184.8) and Chris Clements (185.4). There was a 1-pound weight allowance to the 185 limit.
Menne, the former UFC middleweight champ, hopes to return to the big show with a win over Herman, an up-and-comer from Team Quest. Menne (41-11-2) has the edge in experience, but Herman (9-2) has been on a tear.
