Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Pretty Much Everyone Came in Heavy at the ONE FC ‘Rise to Power’ Weigh-Ins Today, Including Fatty Boom-Boom

You guys, this might come as a Scanners.gif to you, but Tim Sylvia — best known around these parts as Fatty Boom-Boom — failed to make weight for his scheduled contest with Tony Johnson at ONE FC ‘Rise to Power’ tomorrow. Tipping the scales at a hefty-yet-slimmed down 271 pounds (perhaps The Maine-Iac 90 Day Weight Loss Challenge works after all!), Sylvia missed the heavyweight limit by 6 pounds earlier today. While some of you may accuse of us going after the low hanging fruit here, let us not forget that this is the same Tim Sylvia who just weeks ago was informing us of his desires to finish his career in the UFC. This is not a great start.

To be fair, Sylvia wasn’t the most egregious offender at today’s weigh-ins, not by a long shot. That dishonor would be bestowed upon Ryan “The Lion” Diaz, the 13-13 Strikeforce and KOTC veteran who had not competed in nearly three years before agreeing to face Yusup Saadulaev in a bantamweight contest. Weighing in at 144.8 pounds, Diaz surpassed the limit by nearly ten pounds. Somewhere, Anthony Johnson is eating his second straight double fudge ice cream sundae and smiling for completely unrelated reasons.

Sylvia and Diaz, along with Andrew Leone and Lowen Tynanes, will all face penalties for missing weight in the form of purse deductions, although just how much they will lose has yet to be disclosed by ONE FC officials. Thankfully, the scheduled title fights in Honorio Banario vs. Koji Oishi (featherweight) and Bibiano Fernandes vs. Koetsu Okazaki (bantamweight) will actually make it to fruition, as all four fighters successfully made weight.

The entire ONE FC ‘Rise to Power’ fight card can be purchased for just $9.99 through ONE FC’s official website. Featuring the likes of Phil Baroni, Kamal Shalorus, Masakatsu Ueda, and Eduard Folayang, the card is set to kick off tomorrow morning starting at 6:30 a.m. EST.

The full weigh-in results and a video preview of ONE FC ‘Rise to Power’ are below.

-Honorio Banario (144.7) vs. Koji Oishi (144.8) – for featherweight title
-Bibiano Fernandes (134.4) vs. Koetsu Okazaki (134.4) – for interim bantamweight title

You mean to tell me that Tim Sylvia missed weight by only 6 lbs?! AND he's under 3 bills now?????!!!!!?!?!?! GTFOH

What the fuck do you mean he missed weight?! Sounds like he had weight for days.

He had a little extra weight too just in case somebody else came up short.

Well thank God this happened on a day that I had already decided not to give a fuck.

Belchers orange wayne newton-fat albert errr johnny cash tattoo is prett shitty. In sylvias defense wack tribal ink was all the rage 20 years ago when he got them, but it makes you wonder how broke he is 'cause you think he'd want to get that shit tricked out.

Pound for Pound, Sylvia may have the worst tattoos in MMA. Shawn Jordan is a very close second.

Exactly which overhyped HWs do you see Sylvia beating? His last credible win was against a washed-up Paul Buentello, and that was nearly 3 years ago.

As a penalty for coming in overweight, Sylvia was forced to give one of his bags of Doritos to Johnson.

Fatty should have shit himself before the weigh-In, could have got him closer to weight.

Really no fatty jokes in the comment section ?

On a more serious note ; i DO want so see timmay (South park
woise) in the UFC. Im sure he can beat some of the overhyped fighters there.
