Former UFC fighters Anthony "Rumble" Johnson and Andrei "The Pitbull" Arlovski both met their required weight at Friday's official World Series of Fighting 2 weigh-ins, rendering their main event bout official.
Johnson, a former welterweight with notorious weight cutting problems, easily cleared the heavyweight limit this time around, tipping the scale at a burly 230.2 pounds.
Arlovski came in 15 pounds heavier, weighing 245.5.
Initially scheduled to take place at 4:00 p.m. ET, Friday's weigh-ins were delayed for over an hour due to technical difficulties.
Moraes, fresh off an upset of Miguel Torres, checked in at 135.5 pounds. While Nam, looking to capitalize off a first-round knockout of Bellator champion Eduardo Dantas, came in slightly lighter at 135.2 pounds.
