UFC 61 Weigh-Ins

The weigh-ins for UFC 61: Bitter Rivals took place yesterday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Tito Ortiz weighed in at 206.5 lbs after he got into an argument with Dana White and Ken Shamrock because Shamrock weighed in at 206 lbs. Ortiz was upset because the contract he signed said it was a 205 lb fight. Dana White and the guys running the scales explained to Ortiz that since it is a non title fight you’re allowed to be one pound over. After all the drama Ortiz caused, he ended up being over the limit. Besides that little event all fighters made weight.
