The weigh-ins for Saturday's Elite XC: "Unfinished Business" will be open to the public at the Stockton Arena, in Stockton, Calif., this Friday, July 25. The fighters will begin to tip the scales at 2 p.m. local time on the North Side Concourse Level of the venue.
With there being so much local talent on this card, the weigh-ins will likely be an event in itself. If nothing else, it's always interesting to try and get a read on what mindset a fighter is in as he stares down his opponent.
Plus, we all know Nick Diaz had a lot of trouble making 160 pounds in his June 14 fight against Muhsin Corbbrey. He came in at a jaw-dropping nine pounds over the limit. His opponent for Saturday -- Thomas "Wildman" Denny -- has not been shy about saying Diaz better be on weight for this fight or he won't hesitate to pull out.
It should be noted that Nick Diaz is always in great shape. The fact that he was also training for a welterweight title fight against a super-tough Hayato "Mach" Sakurai around that same time may have had something to do with him not making weight -- he was likely trying to bulk up to deal with Sakurai's strength.
It's doubtful Diaz will put this fight -- the first of his pro career in his hometown -- in jeopardy of being canceled over a weight issue. He'll likely be on weight, but we won't know until he actually gets on the scale Friday afternoon.
See you then.
