Travis Lutter failed to make weight on his final attempt coming in at 186.5 lbs. The fight has been changed from a title bout to a three round non-title fight.
Update: 9:41 PM Lutter has confirmed that was unable to make weight and the fight is now a three-round non-title fight. It’ll be interesting to see if the UFC switches up the fight order now to make “Cro Cop” vs. Sanchez or Jackson vs. Eastman as the main-event.
Update: 5:33 AM The UFC has sent out a notice to all of their fans, here it is:
Lutter misses weight, plans to win against Silva, even though just a pound and a half keeps the fight from being a title fight.
Despite two tries at the scale, TUF 4 winner Travis Lutter will not be challenging for Anderson Silva’s UFC Middleweight Championship Saturday night after coming in at a final weight of 186.5 pounds, a pound and a half over the 185-pound middleweight limit. Lutter’s first attempt at making weight was 187 pounds, and after two hours he was only able to lose a half-pound. Tomorrow’s UFC 67: All or Nothing main event will now be a three round non-title match, with Lutter being fined 10% of his purse by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (5% going to Silva, 5% to the NSAC).
