Predictions: 11 of 13 Winners, 5 Perfect, 675 Points   |   Tied for 161st   |   View

The fighters are weighed in and two missed the mark. Felipe Arantes missed weight by 2 lbs, forefeiting 20% of his purse to Perez, while Charles Oliveira tied a UFC record for his fifth career miss (he now shares the distinction with John Lineker.) He was off by a whopping 9 lbs and will forfeit 30% of his purse to Lamas, who agreed to what is now essentially a lightweight fight he weighed in at 146 for. 

By my (rough) estimates, this should grant Lamas in the neighborhood of an extra $15k for taking the fight, win or lose, and the 30% fine marks a step in a new direction for the promotion, which will now be increasing fines depending on the severity of the miss. 

Anyway, this is a great card overall. The action kicks off on UFC Fight Pass at 630pm ET before switching to FS1 for the rest of the night at 8pm.

Enjoy!

Sam text me earlier and said he's never seen anyone look as bad as Arantes did during his cut. Said he looked about ready to die.

I don't really understand the Alvey vs Nicholson matchup. Nicholson is only 7-2 and lost his fight before last. 

Alvey is a far more experienced veteran and is on a 2 fight win streak. 

Just seems like weird match making to me.

Not the most exciting fight night on the paper, but some fights should very tight and entertaining.

Altitude of Mexico City can have an important outcome on some fights.

20-18 Barzola

Avila needs a finish or else he is going to get cut after a crap performance like this.

I've never seen an MMA ref stand so close to the fights on the feet in a fight for majority of the time they're striking. This ref is on top of ****.

Easy 30-27 for Barzola, I think.

Back to the regional circuit for Avila.
