Not one but two fighters ahead of LFA 101 missed weight by over four pounds.
The Legacy Fighting Alliance puts on its first of three March events this weekend. Atop LFA 101: The Undefeated is a 210.4-pound catchweight match between Anthony Kalani and Tee Cummins. As the name suggests, the card is largely comprised of fighters that haven’t suffered a loss yet. The eight-fight event is now official as the weigh-ins took place on Thursday, but multiple fighters missed weight.
Fighting out of Huntington Beach, Calif., Kalani (5-0) has the most impressive undefeated record on the card. This will be the HB Ultimate product’s first fight inside the LFA. The Gladiator Challenge veteran has finished four of his five pro bouts, and will look to create another highlight on Friday night. Unfortunately, Kalani officially weighed in at 210.4 pounds, officially 4.4 pounds over the light heavyweight limit.
This will be only the third professional bout for Cummins (2-0). However, “The Experiment” won two amateur bouts before turning pro, so he has more experience than his record indicates. Cummins has finished both of his pro fights via knockout, and will look to make a statement while under the spotlight. The Tennessee native successfully made weight on his end, stepping on the scales at 204 pounds.
While Kalani blew weight by 4.4 pounds, Jalin Fuller came in 6.2 pounds over the welterweight limit for his fight against Treston Vines. Both fights will continue as planned, with the overweight fighters each paying a penalty to their respective opponents.
LFA 101’s main card will air live on UFC Fight Pass starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. One preliminary bout will also air on the promotion’s Facebook page at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
