Filho, Brownand Yahya missed weight. Filho was 7 pounds over, that dude seems to have too many problems. He has all the talent but many personal issues.
Brown and Filho have two hours to make weight. Brown should make it as he was only a half pound over. Maede agreed to fight Yahya without forcing him to cut the last pound.
Like Billy Jacks' soul attack, I'm one Injun you wont forget.

*The Filho-Sonnen fight will now be a three-round, non-title bout.
**Although Rani Yahya came in 16 ounces over the limit at 137 lbs., Yoshiro Maeda has agreed to face the Brazilian without forcing him to drop another pound.
If Filho has the title now, shouldn't he lose it for not making weight?
Not that the WEC title is going to mean anything now that the weight class is being dropped.
Apparently this card has changed again. Ratliff is out; Rafael Dias is in against Castillo (see weigh-in results). I've updated the card on the first post.
