All 26 fighters made weight Tuesday for Wednesday night's Fight for the Troops 3 (a.k.a. UFC Fight Night 31) in Ft. Campbell, Ky.
Those at the weigh-ins on the Army base saved their biggest ovation for a pair of fighters with military ties: Tim Kennedy and Rafael Natal. Kennedy, a former Army Ranger, weighed in for his middleweight main event fight against Rafael Natal at 186. Natal, for his part, also received an enthusiastic response as he tipped the scales at 185.5.
Meanwhile, Carmouche, the former Marine Corps sergeant, weighed in at 135 pounds for her bantamweight co-main event against Alexis Davis. Davis checked in a pound lighter than her foe.
While there were several near-misses, as a handful of fighters needed the towel treatment before hitting weight, ultimately everyone made it. The only near-incident occurred when Jorge Masvidal and Ruslam Khabilov traded sharp words during their posedown.
