Nate Diaz seemed a little stunned that he didn’t weigh-in Friday at 155 pounds, as the No. 1 contender hit the scale at 155.6. With his bout being a title fight vs. Benson Henderson, Diaz was not allowed the normal one-pound allowance.
After dropping to 155.2 on his second attempt, Diaz finally hit 155, making his fight with Henderson official for this evening at UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz.
It took Diaz (16-7) less than an hour after his initial weigh-in attempt to drop the required weight. The fighter earned his shot at Henderson by securing wins over Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller upon dropping down from welterweight.
