UFC 183 Weigh-In Results And Video

The UFC 183 weigh-ins have now taken place and you can see what all the fighters tipped the scales at below.

Kelvin Gastelum missed the welterweight limit by a whopping 9lbs in the co-main event, but it appears the fight will continue on regardless. The TUF champ, who’s rumored to have had an extremely bad weight cut that resulted in a hospital visit, previously missed weight back in June of last year and he’ll now have to give serious thought to moving up to middleweight.

Also missing weight by a large margin was John Lineker who came in 4lbs over the flyweight limit. This is now the fourth time that Lineker has failed to make weight and surely will force him to fight at bantamweight in the future.

Thankfully there were no such problems in the main event of the evening with both Nick Diaz and Anderson Silva successfully weighing in to an enthusiastic reception from the Las Vegas crowd in attendance.

Over the years I've watched the UFC develop into the powerhouse it is today, organizations like PRIDE, Strikeforce and WEC rise and fall, and Bellator emerge as a new force on the MMA landscape. Throughout it all I've remained captivated by the sport and I'm excited to cover what comes next here on MMA Insight.
