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.

  1. Weak. Learn to make weight before you start calling for a title shot. Maybe he is a 155er…

  2. wow Thats to much weight for this guy to cut

  3. I dont think he called for a title shot, but he did think he would be a bad match up for Aldo b/c of his wrestling & cardio. But I agree, at least make weight b4 talking about the Champ – WOW thats embaressing & not a very good start for a new weight division. wEaK

  4. at least he didn’t goof a la travis lutter

  5. Or Joe Riggs.
