PFL 5 Weigh-ins: Efrain Escudero Eliminated from Playoffs on the Scale

By Staff Aug 1, 2018
At least Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Efrain Escudero is consistent.

Known for missing weight at several points in his career, Escudero again failed on the scale Wednesday in Uniondale, New York, hitting 163.2, which led to his removal from Thursday’s PFL 5 card. His opponent, Islam Mamedov, did his part by hitting 155.2. Mamedov will be paid his show and win money, as well as receive a win in the PFL Playoff standings.

By missing weight for the second time this season, Escudero has been eliminated from post-season consideration.

Thursday’s NBCSN card will go forward with eight bouts.
