UFC on Versus 4 weigh-in photos: An MMAjunkie.com image gallery
PITTSBURGH – MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was on scene for today’s UFC on Versus 4
fighter weigh-ins and captured images of all 22 event competitors.
Today’s festivities took place at Coca-Cola Great Hall at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field. The nearby CONSOL Energy Center plays hosts to Sunday’s event.
Check out images of all the competitors, including newly minted main-event competitors Pat Barry and Cheick Kongo, as well as co-headliners Rick Story and Charlie Brenneman.
All fighters successfully made weight for the show. For a full recap of the proceedings, check out our UFC on Versus 4 weigh-in results post.
The festivities started off on a bizarre note. Confirming an earlier MMAjunkie.com report, UFC broadcaster and event emcee Joe Rogan announced that would-be headliner Nate Marquardt failed to receive medical clearance for the bout and was scratched from the card. His opponent, Story, then received a new opponent: Brenneman (who was scratched from the card earlier this week when opponent T.J. Grant was injured). Their fight was demoted to co-headliner status, and Barry vs. Kongo received the main-event slots as a result.
Although details weren’t revealed about Marquardt’s situation, UFC president Dana White later announced the veteran fighter and onetime title-challenger has been dropped by the organization.
