'March Badness' weigh-in results

The mix of boxers and mixed martial artists set to compete at "March Badness" — a hybrid event that will feature both sports on the same card courtesy of former boxing champion and promoter Roy Jones Jr. — today tipped the scales for the official weigh in.

The pay-per-view (PPV) event will take place at the Pensacola Civic Center in Pensacola, Fla., on March 21.

Former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley will co-headline the MMA portion of the show opposite Jason Guida. It will mark just the second fight ever of his career. Guida, on the other hand, has more than 30 to his credit. He, however, took the heavyweight match up on super short notice after Ken Shamrock was forced out of the bout because of a positive test for steroids.

Another heavyweight showdown is also featured in the main event, pitting UFC veteran Jeff Monson against IFL standout Roy Nelson. Din Thomas, as well as Matt Hughes' Kryptonite, Dennis Hallman, will also be in action.

Check out the "March Badness" MMA weigh in results:

265 lbs.: Bobby Lashley (251.5) vs. Jason Guida (232)
265 lbs.: Roy Nelson (262) vs. Jeff Monson (245.75)
145 lbs.: Din Thomas (144.75) vs. Gabe Lemley (144.75)

Jones Jr. also hit the mark for his 12-round NABO light heavyweight championship showdown against Omar Sheika, coming in at 173.25 pounds. Sheika registered 175 pounds on the scale.

A previously announced light heavyweight tilt between the man who put an end to the Kimbo Slice hype train last October with a 14-second technical knockout, Seth Petruzelli, against ex-WEC 205 pound champion Doug "The Rhino" Marshall, was scrapped because of an injury to "The Silverback."
