World Extreme Cagefighters tipped the scales today for the official WEC 37: "Torres vs. Tapia" weigh-in event at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Unlike the Filho disaster at the WEC 38 weigh-ins, everyone made weight this afternoon without incident.
Today's event marks the last of the formalities leading up to tomorrow's highly anticipated year end show for the promotion.
WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres (34-1) will defend his title against the undefeated ground technician Manny Tapia (10-0-1) in the main event of the night. For the champ, this will be his second title defense since capturing the gold back in February with a first round submission win over Chase Beebe.
Torres is one of the biggest stars in the WEC right now and any event involving him should be considered a a must-watch.
WEC 37 will also be the last event for the promotion in which they feature any fights above and including the middleweight division. The light heavyweight match between Mark Munoz and Ricardo Barros is the only fight on the card from one of the three weight classes being dismissed.
Without further delay, here are the official WEC 37 weigh-in results:
