MMA

Next week, a pair of events are coming our way from the UFC in the form of the UFC Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale and UFC 226.

While much discussion has been started lately, mainly from UFC President Dana White, about going back to the old style of weighing in.

However, when it comes to the next two UFC events, no changes are going to be made as far as weigh-ins go.

The following fighter memo was obtained by ESPN from the UFC about the upcoming events weigh-ins:

“We appreciate the feedback we’ve received to date as we continue to work with athletic commissions and federations to actively analyze the issue and consider implementing new policies to further support safe weight management practices. Going forward, UFC athletes and support will be notified well in advance of any policy changes surrounding weigh-in times and weight management policy.”

There is no word on when the weigh-in policy could change, with the next opportunity for the promotion being at UFC Fight Night Boise on Saturday, July 14.
