UFC 138: “Pitbull” misses weight in England

Thiago “Pitbull” really isn’t seeing his better days. The pre-UFC 138 weight-in just took place in England, and the Ceará, Brazil native was the only one not to make weight. The former Evilázio Feitoza student has an hour to lose 500 grams and make the 77-kilo weight limit.

It wouldn’t be the first time “Pitbull” loses a battle to the scale. The knockout artist failed to make weight at UFC 185, in 2008, and at the 117th installment of the event, in 2010.

All the other fighters make their stipulated weight ceilings.

Stay tuned to for more on UFC 138.
