* - Alves has additional time to cut the extra pound



Where you at, Dolce!?

This is the 3rd time in Alves' past 7 fights that he's missed weight.

It wasn't aired live. Not sure if it will be available later or not. Photos might be as close as you get...once those start appearing.

You can see the Leben/Munoz staredown on Facebook. Munoz looked like he was talking a lot of s***.

EDIT: Here it is.

When I heard Alves missed, I was thinking by multiple pounds. So thankfully it was just a pound.

But still, need to get that weight cutting under control.

Alves should make the move to middle weight. I think its getting ridiculous that he cant make weight

He made the weight on his second attempt.

Yep. I de-pinned that topic yesterday. I think he got what he wanted from me and bailed. I feel so dirty and used...

He would be to small for MW, he's only 5'9'' with a 70in reach. Besides it's not like he didn't make the weight on his 2nd attempt. It would be different it had to be at a catch weight because he couldn't make weight.

Benaro, Pickett, Lee and Perosh look disgusting.

For some reason I thought Pickett was taller than Barao.. . .


This fight is gonna be awesome.

Papy Abedi looks pretty good. Tall order for a first fight, but would love to see him get an easier fight down the road.

I finally saw the weigh ins and it looks like Leben is much thicker than Munoz but they weigh the same. Maybe Munoz just has heavy bones.

I'm not too confident in Munoz right now. Might change my pick.

Thickness doesn't win fights, if that's the case, then Marvin Eastman would be undefeated.
