MFC 25 weigh-in results for 'Vindication' event on May 7


The official weigh-in event for MFC 25: "Vindication" has wrapped up from the City Centre Mall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Seventeen of the 18 fighters set to compete at the Northlands Expo Centre tomorrow night (May 7) made their respective weights without much of a problem.

However, the one fighter who missed his mark might come as somewhat of a surprise.

Ten-fight UFC veteran Wilson Gouveia wasn't expected to have any difficult making the 206-pound limit for his light heavyweight battle against Ryan Jimmo, considering the American Top Team member's last five fights have all been contested in the 185-pound middleweight division.

That wasn't the case though. Gouveia tipped the scale at 207.9 pounds -- almost two pounds over the limit. The Brazilian will have to forfeit a quarter of his payday and the fight will go on as expected.

MFC 25 will feature a 185-pound middleweight scrap between UFC castoffs Thales Leites and Jesse Taylor as its main event. Fellow ex-UFC stars Luigi Fiorivanti, Pete Spratt, Richie Hightower and Gouveia will also be in action tomorrow night.
