Former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos will face rising star, Tony Ferguson as the main event for the TUF: Latin America 3 Lightweight Tournament Finale tomorrow night, but the first battle is the weigh-ins.

None of the main or co-main event fighters missed weight, and in fact, Ferguson stunned everyone by coming in at 155 pounds (championship weight) while still wearing his blue jeans.

But for two other fighters, this wasn't their day.

Charles Oliveira who was set to face Ricardo Lamas at featherweight (145 pounds) weighed in at 155, a whole nine pounds over the allowed maximum. This is the fifth time that Oliveira has missed weight. It seems that despite the overage the fight will go on.

The other overage came when Felipe Arantes weighed in two pounds heavy for his featured prelim fight with Erik Perez.

Other than those two hiccups the weigh-ins went smoothly. The televised ceremonial weigh-ins will air later tonight.
