The Ultimate Fighter 5 finale weigh-in results: Melendezdoesn't cut it

TUF 5 finale weigh-insÂÂ

The crop of fighters for the UFC Ultimate Finale 5 all weighed-in today without incident with the exception of Brandon Melendez, who at 157 lbs. failed to make weight according to UFC.com.

In the interest of fighter safety, NSAC doctors would not permit Melendez to try and lose the extra pound needed to make weight, instead opting to let the match continue with Melendez being fined 10% of his purse.

That 10% will be split evenly between the NSAC and his opponent Joe Lauzon.

Here are the official results:

BJ Penn (155.5) vs Jens Pulver (152)
Manny Gamburyan (155) vs Nate Diaz (155)
Roger Huerta (155) vs Doug Evans (154)
Floyd Sword (185) vs Thales Leites (186)
Brandon Melendez (157) vs Joe Lauzon (155)
Andy Wang (156) vs Cole Miller (155)
Rob Emerson (155) vs Gray Maynard (155)
Allen Berube (153) vs Leonard Garcia (155)
Brian Geraghty (155) vs Matt Wiman (156)

The Ultimate Fighter 5 finale takes place tomorrow, June 23rd, at the Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

The televised portion on SpikeTV begins at 9 p.m. EST. Quick results will begin to flow earlier than that here at UFCmania.com at about 7 p.m. EST with the undercard action.
