You have to feel for Ricardo Lamas, because he now may have two fights canceled on him.
Lamas was tapped to fight underwater, stone-carrying legend B.J. Penn, but a rib injury forced Penn out of the fight and the UFC to eventually cancel the entire #UFCManilla card. The UFC promised to find all of the fighters replacement fights, this is where Charles Oliveira came in for this weekend's #UFCMexico.
It seems like Lamas can't catch a break though, because Oliveira just weighed in ten pounds over—technically nine pounds if you count the one pound allowance. So, he just showed up at lightweight to a featherweight contest.
The current word is that #Lamas will still take the fight, but that doesn't mean UFC will accept it or if #Oliveira will continue on to fight night either. It is interesting to note, that not only is this technically the fifth time he has missed weight, but Oliveira is 3-1 in fights he's missed weight for and still fought.
Watch the weigh-in below and we'll keep you informed if the fight will still be on.
