The official weigh in event for UFC on Versus 6: "Cruz vs. Johnson" took place earlier today (Sept. 30, 2011) at the DC Armory (2001 East Capitol Street SE) in Washington, D.C.
Birthday boy and lightweight veteran Yves Edwards brought cupcakes with him to the scale, which Byron Bloodworth may have gotten a taste of backstage considering he was three pounds overweight for his bantamweight brawl against Mike Easton.
Check back in two hours to see if he made his mark.
Update -- Bloodworth will be fined a portion of his purse and Edwards has agreed to go ahead with the bout at a catchweight of 138-pounds.
UFC on Versus 6 will be headlined by a bantamweight title fight that features champion Dominick Cruz trying to dominate the division's mightiest mouse, Demetrious Johnson. In the co-featured fight of the night, one of the heavyweight division's shortest fighters, Pat Barry, will take on its tallest, Stefan Struve.
Other match ups set for the televised main card include a welterweight war between Anthony Johnson and Charlie Brenneman, as well as a long awaited rematch that pits Mac Danzig vs. Matt Wiman.
