The official weigh-in event for "Kong vs. Ninja" went down earlier today (May 20, 2011) for the upcoming BAMMA 6 show taking place tomorrow night (May 21) from the UK's Wembley Arena.
All fighters made weight (eventually).
There were a handful of close calls throughout the day, including overages by Fraser Opie and Jeremy Bailey, but after a few hours (and a few good sweats) both competitors were able to shed the excess pounds and hit their respective marks.
BAMMA 6 will feature the return of Tom "Kong" Watson as he faces PRIDE veteran Murilo "Ninja" Rua while Frank "Twinkle Toes" Trigg mixes it up with John Phillips. Ivan Salaverry has also come out of retirement to challenge Matt Ewin.
