Carano fails to make weight, fined 12.5% of purse

Gina Carano's struggles with the scale continued Friday during the CBS-EliteXC "Saturday Night Fights" weigh-ins at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Carano weighed in at 144.5 pounds for her 140-pound bout against Kaitlin Young. There is a one pound allowance, but Carano and her camp accepted that she would not be able to cut 3.5 pounds in one hour.

In her previous fight, against Tonya Evinger, Carano weighed in at 141.1, but she was given the extra .1 allowance because she had shorts on. For her bout against Julie Kedzie at the first-ever EliteXC event, Carano weighed in at 141.25.

Young, who stepped off the scales safely at 140.5, allowed the fight to continue and will receive 12.5% of Carano's purse.
