The official weigh-in event for Shine Fights 3: "Worlds Collide" took place earlier this evening at the Big Apple Restaurant & Sports Pub in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
For the most part, each of the 16 fighters set to compete at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville tomorrow night, including main event participants Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga and Din "Dinyero" Thomas, were successful in hitting their respective weight limits without too much trouble, according to MMASpot.net.
The former boxing champion Mayorga will make his mixed martial arts debut in the headlining bout opposite Thomas, who is a nine-time UFC veteran. There is clearly no love lost between the two men, as the pushing and shoving from last month's press conference, continued at today's event.
Today's extracurricular activities weren't quite as entertaining as what went down at the press conference, but it's clear that these two can't wait for tomorrow night.
While that won't come as much of a shock to most, one surprise at the weigh ins was the absence of main card fighter Nick Thompson. Apparently "The Goat" suffered an injury in training this week, and he'll be replaced by his teammate, journeyman Derrick Noble, who has 40 professional fights to his credit.
