The weigh-ins were not without drama.
Borg missed the non title fight flyweight limit by two pounds and was given an additional hour from the close of the faceoffs that follow the weigh-ins to make weight, but failed to, and has been fined 30% of purse. The fight will go on.
In April of 2019 Borg missed weight for the third time, and vowed to retire if he missed weight again: "I also want it to go on record that if I ever miss weight again or miss a fight due to anything other than a serious injury I will leave the sport of MMA forever," he wrote on his social network. "I'm coming back better than ever."
And when Nathaniel Wood stepped on the scale, he was announced as 136.8 pounds. Wood looked baffled, but his coach Brad Pickett darted forward with his fighter still on the scale and pointed out that the weight had been read incorrectly, and was, in fact, 136. It was then properly announced, and the fight was offiial.
