TUF 20 Finale Weigh-In Results: Charles Olivera Misses Weight AGAIN, Aisling Daly Comes in Heavy as Well

The TUF 20 Finale weigh-ins went down earlier today in Las Vegas, and headliners Carla Esparza and Rose Namajunas hit their 115-pound strawweight limits on the button. But not everyone was so successful. Featherweight Charles Oliveira missed weight for the third time in his UFC career, hitting 147 pounds on his first attempt, and only shedding a half-pound after an hour. As a result, 10% of his purse will go to opponent Jeremy Stephens. The last time we saw Oliveira, he had missed weight by five pounds before UFC Fight Night 50, and was pulled off the card due to health concerns.

TUF 20 castmember Aisling Daly also screwed the pooch, coming in at a whopping 118 pounds for her strawweight matchup against Alex Chambers. Daly was given one hour to make weight, but decided not to make another attempt; she will surrender 20% of her purse to Chambers. Complete TUF 20 Finale weigh-in results are below…

Video Highlights: Aisling Daly TKO’s Angela Magana In a Barnburner on Last Night’s TUF 20

Team Pettis’ Aisling Daly has a style that can be best described as…unorthodox. She throws awkward, repetitive 1-2 combos and standing hammerfists that evoke memories of Jade Chun vs. Taeler Jackson. She attacks with her chin sticking straight up in the air — her head’s on a beanpole, as Joe Rogan might say. When it comes to submissions and scrambling, she often seems like she’s just making it up as she goes along. Uhhh…maybe if I just grab her arm like this…and twist it that way?

But Aisling Daly also has surprisingly decent head movement, an iron chin, and the kind of killer instinct that would make Gary Ridgway blush with envy. Daly is just plain aggressive, and the relentless pace she sets from start to finish will fucking break you. While it’s easy to understand how her less-than-flashy style led her to be picked last despite being ranked #5, her third round TKO of Team Melendez’s Angela Magana on last night’s episode of TUF 20 surely erased anyone’s doubts when it came to her skills as a fighter. “Aisling is just one of those ladies that you just know can fight,” as Pettis summed it up.

Full fight recap after the jump.
