Invicta FC: Coenen vs. Ruyssen Weigh-In Video and ResultsPosted on April 28, 2012, 05:43 AM by Anton Gurevich
All 22 Invicta FC participants stepped on the scales as part of the official weigh-in ceremony ahead of tonight's fight card. The event is headlined by the Bantamweight clash between Marloes Coenen and Romy Ruyssen, only that Ruyssen missed weight by 4.4lbs, and will now forfeit 10% of her fighting purse. But she was not the only one, three other fighters missed weight as well; Ashleigh Curry (later made weight), Randi Miller, and Sofia Bagherdai, were all off the mark.
Invicta FC has a unique weigh-in format. If fighter misses weight on first attempt, she forfeits 10% of her fighting purse, and if the weight is still off limits on second attempt, another 15% go to the opponent.
Invicta FC 1 will take place tonight, at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas. Randi Miller and Rom Ruyssen will lose 25%, Ashleigh Curry was 137.2 on her first attempt, so only 10% will go off her paycheck. The biggest "weight problem" for Invicta FC was when Sofia Bagherdai weighed in at 120.6, 4.6 off limit. KSAC rules allow only 3lbs weigh difference (except 5 for Featherweight), so in order not to cancel the bout, it was Ashley Cummins who weighed in at 120.6 on her seccond 'attempt' to save the day. Still, Bagherdai will forfeit 10% of her fighting purse.
