WEC 36 Weigh-in Results – Filho over 7lbs

The weigh-ins for WEC 36 today were anything but smooth as three fighters, including Featherweight challenger Mike Brown and Middleweight champ Paulo Filho, missed their agreed upon weights. Mike Brown, who will challenge champ Urijah Faber in the events main event, came in a half pound over weight but had no trouble losing it in the allotted two hours. Paulo Filho, who will face Chael Sonnen in a highly anticipated rematch, came in an astounding seven pounds overweight. While he has two hours to drop the extra pounds, it seems unlikely that he’ll be able to do so and the fight will either be rescheduled or will no longer have the Middleweight title on the line.
