November 11, 2010 – The WGC is returning to Houston for their second show on November 12, 2010. Many of Houston’s top fighters are returning to the cage at the Pasadena Convention Center. The Weigh Ins for tomorrow nights fights took place at Metro Fight Club near downtown.
All fighters made weight on their first attempt except RJ Knepp. Because his fight with Cisne is scheduled to be a title fight, there is no 1lb allowance like their is in non-title fights. According to TDLR rules, if the fight took place with Knepp missing weight and Cisne would win he would get the belt. However, if Knepp were to win, he would not get the belt since he didn’t make weight.
Initially Knepp agreed to the fight, but later jumped rope in a sauna suit and worked of the extra weight, opening up his chances for the title.
The most eventfull part of the weigh ins was the scale being off and needing to be calibrated. It seemed to put a scare into several fighters who thought they might miss weight.
