Video: EliteXC weigh-in results for 'Heat'

New, 96 comments

Elite XC: "Heat" -- the third installment of "Saturday Night Fights on CBS" -- will take place at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., tomorrow night and air live on the network television channel beginning at 9 p.m. ET.

The last of the formalities before fight time will take place today with the official fighter weigh-ins. MMAmania.com will be in attendance at the arena for the festivities and provide the latest results when the fighters tip the scales today at 4 p.m. ET.

The big question going in is whether or not Gina Carano will make the 140-pound weight limit for her fight with Kelly Kobald. "Conviction" failed to cut the weight for her May 31 match against Kaitlin Young. She came in at 144.5 pounds and was docked a percentage of her purse for the bout.

Carano, however, was confident during a conference call last week that she would make the weight for this fight saying, "I'm going to weigh 140 pounds for the fight. I've got really high expectations for this weigh-in."

We'll find out shortly.

***Update*** We just got back from the arena, and this was one of the more eventful weigh-ins in recent memory.

First, Gina Carano did not make weight on her first attempt. She tipped the scales at 142.75 pounds on the first try. She was visibly drained from cutting the weight, and it was clear she wasn't going to be able to lose the 1.75 pounds she would need to in order to make the limit.

But she was dedicated to hitting the mark. So dedicated in fact that she decided to take off the sports bra and skirt she was wearing in hopes that losing her clothes would make the difference.

You read that right.

Apparently that skirt had a pretty high thread count too because losing it did the trick, and she made 141 pounds. Obviously they were covering every inch of her with towels, but she was completely nude otherwise.

Damn towels!

There were also two altercations to report. Paul Daley and Jake Shields both weighed in and made the weight limit for their 170 pound title fight. Everything was cool until they had to square off for the cameras.

"Semtex" immediately started in with the trash talking. Shields didn't take too kindly to the disrespect, and there was some pushing and shoving that followed. Both guys looked heated when they were finally separated.

That fight is going to be all fireworks tomorrow night. These two definitely have no love lost.

Finally, after everybody else got up there, Shamrock and Kimbo weighed in for their main event fight. When it came time to square off Kimbo refused to look Shamrock in the eye. Instead he flexed his arms and stared out at the crowd.

When the camera lights stopped flashing, the Miami native turned around and started walking off the stage. Shamrock didn't like that one bit and screamed out, "don't turn your back on me" and shoved him hard in the back.

Shit hit the fan at that point. Bas Rutten was trying to get at Shamrock. Kimbo's posse went nuts. Kimbo was furious. It was insane.

Ken Shamrock might have just dug his own grave with that little stunt. We'll find out tomorrow night.

Here are the rest of the official results (look for these to be updated around 4 p.m. ET):

265 lbs.: Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson (234.5) vs. Ken Shamrock (206.5)
