Xcess Fighting's debut card is set for tonight after yesterday's weigh-ins, although there was one big (literally) missing piece of the puzzle at the weigh-ins: Butterbean. The Super Heavyweight fighter, whose real name is Eric Esch, was to be in the main event but mysteriously no-showed.

DC-this reminds of your boy Tito's backing out of his boxing match with Dana White. Is Butterbean scared of his opponent??

I dont think Butterbean is scared of anybody but this sure is strange. I dont know anything about this guy he was supposed to be fighting but maybe if this guy had the ability to take Butterbean down and pound on him (which I dont think he could stop anybody from doing), then I might could understand him backing out if he knew there was no way he was going to win.

Go Butterbean!!! (who happens to be from my hometown here in AL)

They're saying he apparently got cold feet, someone was reportedly even offering Bean $20K for the fight. For a small organization like this, that's like 6-figure money from UFC.
