UFC: Struve vs Miocic Weigh-Ins (Video & Results)
NOTTINGHAM, England – MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was on scene and reporting live from today's official UFC on FUEL TV 5 fighter weigh-ins.
Today's festivities took place at Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England.
While the main-card fighters were on weight, late-notice prelim replacement DaMarques Johnson weighed 183 pounds for a 175-pound catchweight fight with Gunnar Nelson.
UFC officials haven't clarified if Johnson, who took the fight on a few weeks' notice, will be fined or he'll continue trying to cut weight.
Among those also weighing in were heavyweights Stefan Struve (251 pounds) and Stipe Miocic (239), who co-headline the event, and welterweights Dan Hardy (169) and Amir Sadollah (169), who clash in the co-main event.

Anyone knows why Nelson vs Johnson was a 175 catchweight bout? Is it due to Johnson being a short notice replacement?
He just fought a month ago. Not very sure why he isn't able to cut the weight...and he came in at 183, hmm.
Edit: Whats up with Kingsbury? Made me laugh. That beard.

Can anyone shed some light on that catchweight bout?

DaMarques Johnson only took the fight on 2 weeks notice, so i guess he said he wouldnt be able to make 170.
