All of the fighters at UFC 137 made weight except for former lightweight turned featherweight Tyson Griffin.

Griffin hit the scales and weighed in at 149 pounds, three pounds over the 146-pound limit for his featherweight bout with Bart Palaszewski.

Unfortunately, Griffin was unable to cut the additional weight so he will be fined 25 percent of his purse and the fight with Palaszewski will now be a catchweight bout at 148 pounds.

UFC officials confirmed the move to MMAWeekly.com after the weigh-ins ended on Friday.
