The official weigh-in event for tomorrow night's inaugural all-female Invicta Fighting Championship event took place today (April 27, 2012) at Hotel Phillips in Kansas City, Missouri.
Of the 22 fighters who stepped onto the scales, a whopping four ladies missed weight. Most notable were main event fighter Romy Ruyssen who stepped on the scales 4.4 pounds above the contracted 146 pound limit. Also missing weight were ex-boxer Ashleigh Curry, Olympic wrestler Randi Miller and Fatal Femme Fighting veteran Sofia Bagherdai.
Invicta has a unique weigh-in format. The four fighters who missed weight the first time around are automatically penalized 10 percent of their fight purse. If they fail to make weight the second time, they are fined a total of 25 percent of the purse and the bout is moved up a weight class as it does not hold catchweight bouts.
