Metric Weigh-Ins for UFC 70   [View Full Version]
crimethinc » Posted 1/24/07 2:48:00AM

I remember at UFC 38 in London, Matt Hughes second title defense against Carlos Newton, Hughes had to do two weigh-ins because the sanctioning body in the UK uses the metric system. So a WW fighter has to weigh in at 77 kg or roughly 169 lbs. 10 oz. I wonder if there will be similar happenings at UFC 70.

It's a good possibility. For those that are unaware of the conversion, you divide the number of pounds by 2.2 to get kilos (roughly).

155 lbs = 70 kg
170 lbs = 77 kg
185 lbs = 84 kg
205 lbs = 93 kg

the conversion from kg to pounds is 1kg x 2.2046........i knew my useless knowledge would come in handy somewhere......

77kg = 169.75

Not a real big difference. A quarter pound. But will the sanctioning body allow on kilo either way? Or something like 500 grams?
