Two fighters miss weight, another scratched following disastrous UFC on ESPN 13 weigh ins

The UFC on ESPN 13 weigh ins were held earlier today in Abu Dhabi for the “Kattar vs. Ige” MMA event, which takes place this Weds. night (July 15) on Yas Island, and we’re not exactly off to the best start for the promotion’s latest midweek affair.

Abdul Razak Alhassan came in at 174 pounds for his 170-pound showdown against Mounir Lazzez (171), not long before Chris Fishgold tipped the scale at 149 pounds, four pounds higher than featherweight opponent Jared Gordon (145). Both fighters were fined 20-percent of their fight purses.

In addition, Kenneth Bergh was scratched from the event altogether when his cut down to light heavyweight was ruled medically unsafe by UFC doctors. That means Jorge Gonzalez will no longer compete at the “Fight Island” event but is expected to receive his “show” purse for making the 205-pound mark.
