Outside of the top bouts, not much professionalism was on display during the LFA 115 weigh-ins.
The Legacy Fighting Alliance's latest event will be headlined by a light heavyweight title bout between Joshua Silveira and Tee Cummins, who both made weight. Both fighters vying for the belt are undefeated. Silveira sports a 5-0 record, and most recently choked out Rafael Viana and Matthew Paul. Cummins is 4-0 and has finished all four of his past opponents. Neither man had trouble making weight, as Silveira tipped the scale at 204 pounds, and "The Experiment" weighed 203.8 pounds.
However, five fighters on the card missed weight and caused a slew of changes to the card. This includes Bryan Bautista withdrawing from his bantamweight bout against Mando Gutierrez due to issues cutting weight. Other fighters that missed weight include Hilarie Rose, James Roland Waller, Reshal Malik and Anteze Howard. All their respective bouts will continue, although they will pay a penalty to their opponents. Two additional matches in the form of a flyweight tilt between Jeff Jepsen and Tyus White as well as an amateur bantamweight battle between Gabriel Wanderley and Pierre Hampton were scratched for undisclosed reasons.
The LFA 115 main card will air live on UFC Fight Pass starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Friday night.
