Those that have made their displeasure clear that the Dan Hardy vs. Chris Lytle fight was slotted as the main event of UFC on Versus 5 tomorrow night (Aug. 14, 2011) in Milwaukee were given a bit more ammunition at the weigh-ins today (official results here).
That's because "The Outlaw," who came out wearing no less than four pairs of underwear, ended up stripping all the way down to his birthday suit in an effort to make the contracted 171-pound weight limit. He failed to do so, however, coming in just a half pound over.
Lytle, being who he is, was quick to tell both Hardy and UFC President Dana White that he had absolutely zero problem with the extra pound and he's ready to rock-n-roll no matter what. For his part, Hardy looked a bit upset and seemed as though he wanted to cut the extra weight.
And that's exactly what he did, taking the time to cut down to make 170-pounds on his third attempt. Game on tomorrow night, Maniacs.
