WSOF 24 Weigh-in Results: Jon Fitch, Yushin Okami OK’d for Main-Event Duty

By Brian Knapp Oct 16, 2015
Neither Jon Fitch nor Yushin Okami has experienced the kind of success they expected inside the World Series of Fighting cage. Now, the former Ultimate Fighting Championship title challengers must contend with one another.

Fitch clocked in at 170 pounds ahead of his three-round welterweight clash with Okami (170) in the WSOF 24 main event on Saturday at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. The four participants in the two title fights booked underneath the headliner also met their contracted weight requirements at Friday’s official weigh-in, as Blagoy Ivanov (252) prepares to defend his heavyweight crown against Derrick Mehmen (237) and blue-chip Chechen prospect Magomed Bibulatov (124) meets Donavon Frelow (124) for the inaugural WSOF flyweight championship.

WSOF 24 “Fitch vs. Okami” -- which airs live on the NBC Sports Network at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT -- will also feature a light heavyweight battle pitting 2011 Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Championships gold medalist Vinny Magalhaes (204) against Matt Hamill (205) and a lightweight tilt pairing Nick Newell (156) with Tom Marcellino (155).

The six-bout undercard will stream to Sherdog.com at 5:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT: Rick Glenn (XXX) vs. Adam Ward (145), Marcos Alexandre Campos de Almeida (145) vs. Saul Almeida (148*), Rodrigo Almeida (148*) vs. Bruce Boyington (145), Justin Torrey (185) vs. Rex Harris (184), Washington Nunes da Silva (173*) vs. Colton Smith (170) and Patrick Walsh (228) vs. Tyler King (240).
