W1 Weigh-In Results – Title fight back on again
W1 fighters weighed in today and the fights are official. Both main eventers, Denis Kang and Dae Won Kim, made the Middleweight limit and the fight is on. Adrian Wooley and his W1 title challenger Randy Spence also made weight for their Bantamweight bout.
Unfortunately, Thierry Quenneville missed the Featherweight limit. Oddly enough, W1 officials are saying that the title fight will go on as planned despite Quenneville missing weight. His opponent, John Fraser, did miss weight but that was only after it was apparent that Quenneville was going to miss and Fraser was told that he could consume fluids. Top MMA News has not heard of a five round title fight occurring after one of the fighters missing weight, so stay tuned, as this one could change.
UPDATE: As Thierry Quenneville was not going to make weight, John Fraser and him agreed to fight at a 147 lb catchweight for the W1 Featherweight title. Again, not something that is normally done, but best of luck to both fighters.
UPDATE 2: Jack Bateman, President of W1, now indicates that there is no title on the line for the John Fraser vs Thierry Quenneville fight.
UPDATE 3: Word is the title fight is back on and the fight will go on as a 5 round fight.
Tickets are still available for this good card. Top MMA News encourages you to pick some up.
