UFC Fight Night 22 Weigh-Ins: Fighters hit the scales in Austin, TexasPosted on September 14, 2010, 05:24 PM by Daniel Cassidy
Just a few hours ago, all 20 participants of tomorrow nights Ultimate Fight Night 22: Marquardt vs Palhares took to the scales in the official weigh ins. Out of those 20, 19 safely made weight, with Efrain Escudero being the only one to miss the limit, weighing in at 159 pounds. As is customary, Escudero has to forfeit 20 percent of his purse to his opponent, Charles Oliviera.
The card is due to go down at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, and will be headlined by a Middleweight bout between Nate Marquardt vs Rousimar Palhares, in what could possibly be a title contender elimination bout. Also on the card, the heavy handed Brit Ross Pearson looks to move a step closer to his Lightweight title ambition, should he overcome fellow TUF alumni Cole Miller.
