WSOF 2 weigh-in results: Anthony Johnson, Andrei Arlovski easily make weight

Former UFC fighters Anthony Rumble Johnson and Andrei The Pitbull Arlovski both met their required weight at Friday’s official World Series of Fighting 2 weigh-ins, rendering their main event bout official. Johnson, a former welterweight with notorious weight cutting problems, easily cleared the heavyweight limit this time around, tipping the scale at a burly 230.2 pounds. Arlovski came in 15 pounds heavier, weighing 245.5. Initially scheduled to take place at 4:00 p.m. ET, Friday’s weigh-ins were delayed for over an hour due to technical difficulties. For the card’s featured co-main event, bantamweight giant killers Marlon Moraes and Tyson Nam both registered within their required weight. Moraes, fresh off an upset of Miguel Torres, checked in at 135.5 pounds. While Nam, looking to capitalize off a first-round knockout of Bellator champion Eduardo Dantas, came in slightly lighter at 135.2 pounds. Complete WSOF 2 weigh-in results can be found below.
