UFC 67 - Final Weigh-In Results
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).

Interesting stuff guy. Where did you get that info from? I dont think he could beat A.S. even if he was weighing 200.

Lutter not making weight has got to hurt him mentally and physically. I don't think this fight will last longer then Hughes and Joe Riggs. I don't care what a fighter says, not making weight hurts them mentally.
