The scales have been tipped, and each bout of 'UFC 131: Dos Santos vs. Carwin' is now official. All fighters on the card successfully made weight during Friday's pre-event weigh-in.
Shane Carwin measured in at a surprisingly nimble (for him at least) 254 pounds, but still managed to outweigh his opponent, Junior dos Santos (239), by fifteen pounds. While the size differential between the two is not nearly as vast as some may have expected, it will be quite interesting to see how Carwin performs at the slightly lower weight.
Also noteworthy, former lightweight contender Kenny Florian had no trouble reaching his new featherweight target. Both "K-Flo" and his opponent, Diego Nunes, tipped the scaled at a spry 145 pounds.
UFC 131 will be held June 11th, at 9 p.m. in Vancouver, British Columbia. The action will be available to be seen live on pay-per-view.
