Tomorrow night (Oct. 26, 2013) at the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Florida, World Series of Fighting (WSOF) returns to NBC Sports with WSOF 6. The card is headlined by Josh Burkman and Steve Carl squaring off for the vacant WSOF Welterweight title.
The fighters hit the scales Friday (Oct. 25, 2013) afternoon and several missed weight. Jon Fitch is set to face Marcelo Alfaya, who failed to make the welterweight limit by two pound. More embarrassing is Dan Lauzon who missed the lightweight mark by three pounds. However, Andrew Yates took the proverbial cake, by missing weight by five pounds.
The good news is that the two fighters that needed to make weight, Burkman and Carl, are professionals and were able to come in under the welterweight limit, making their title fight official.
