UFC St. Louis Loses Co-Main Event (Weigh-in Results)
The fighters competing on Sunday’s UFC Fight Night: Stephens vs. Choi fight card in St. Louis officially weighed in at the host hotel on Saturday. The event will mark the first time the UFC has hosted an event in St. Louis.
Featherweights Jeremy Stephens and Dooho Choi headline the event at the Scottrade Center. Mixed martial arts pioneer Vitor Belfort was scheduled to compete for the final time against Uriah Hall in the fight card’s co-main event but the bout was cancelled during the weigh-in.
Belfort weighed in last and Hall never stepped on the scales. “Unfortunately we start out with an unfortunate announced,” said a UFC spokesperson. “The co-main event between Vitor Belfort and Uriah Hall is off. Uriah Hall unable to weigh in, so that event is off.”
All other fighters except one, Mads Burnell, successfully made weight. Burnell missed the mark by four pounds.
