Nurmagomedov vs. Trujillo weigh in scuffle made Mike Tyson’s day

Saturday, May 25, 2013

UFC weigh ins have grown from sparsely attended afterthoughts to full on productions, with thousands in attendance. But rarely do things get as, um, lively as they did Friday night, when Khabib Nurmagomedov donned what looks like an entire sheep, failed to make weight, shoved opponent Abel Trujillo, and appeared to make Mike Tyson’s day, all before being dragged off by Burt Watson.

Not true, they wont be fined. Weigh ins are very emotional. That’s why we all love them!!!! Fighters are mean, nasty and ready to go. That’s why we are there to make sure everything goes smooth. Kizer and Burt over reacted a bit unless there is more to the story that I don’t know.

Tyson appeared as eager to meet the fighters as they were to meet ‘Iron’ Mike.
