PXC 41 Weigh-In Results: Two contests scrapped from line-up

Despite the threat of Typhoon Haiyan, fighters took to the scale on Friday ahead of their scheduled match-ups on Saturday’s PXC 41 fight card.

Headliners Ale Cali and Louis Smolka hit their respective marks and their bout is now green lid ahead of Saturday’s featured spectacle. Both fighters will be contesting for the promotion’s Flyweight title.

However, during the weigh-ins several fighters failed to make their contracted weight limits, with the most notable offenders being Frank Camacho and Ev Ting. Feeling the effects of the aforementioned Typhoon Haiyan, Camacho looked distinctly weak as he hustled towards the scale, tipping the balance at 164-lbs; almost ten pounds over the weight limit. His bout with Tae Hyun Bang (formerly known as Seung Hwan Bang) was then rightfully called off.

Ev Ting, scheduled to compete in a rematch with promotional vet Mark Striegl, came in a surprising six pounds over his Featherweight limit. After failing to make weight the second time around, the bout was dropped as well.

PXC CEO Edward Calvo was undoubtedly disappointed with the outcome of proceedings but was confident that the remaining bouts would deliver.

PXC 41 takes place November 9 at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City, Philippines. As with previousevents, fans around the globe can catch all the action LIVE online at http://new.livestream.com/accounts/1594039/events/2473023.
