Shocker of the Day: Thiago Alves Misses Weight at UFC 138 Weigh Ins

(We’re all going to ARBYS!!!!)

Well, at least we can say he’s consistent. In what has been the most detrimental factor in Thiago Alves‘ career, the former welterweight title challenger once again showed up to a weigh-in overweight, just barely tipping the scales yesterday at 172 pounds, or a pound over the limit. Though not nearly as bad as his previous entries, the fact of the matter remains that this marks the third time in Alves’ last seven fights that he has initially failed to make weight. Aside from showing up heavy to his fights with Matt Hughes and Jon Fitch at UFC 85 and 117, respectively, Alves was also busted for using a banned diuretic to make weight for his match against Tony DeSouza back at UFC 66. MRuss would not approve.

“The Pitbull” was given an hour to drop the pound, and did so successfully.

Full weigh-in results and the intense Leben/Munoz and Alves/Abedi stare-downs are below:

Chris Leben (186) vs. Mark Munoz (186)

"Maybe it’s the same type of homage you gave to Billy Madison?"

Danga-- were you aware that those assholes at mmafighting ripped off your article? Sure theirs came out first, but it had Danga writtem all over it's Same misleading headlines, same "I wish I hadn't wasted my time" aftertaste.

Maybe it's the same type of homage you gave to Billy Madison?

Papi looks to be one the most athletic and explosive fighters to make his UFC debut in awhile.

Over/under how long it takes to cut Alves if he loses is set at 15 minutes, Ill take the under.

First he's fucking all the ring girls, now he's hog watching all the fighters? His mom was right this guy is a scum bag.

Word is Alves had no problem rubbing out one pound after seeing Munoz weigh-in.
