MMAJunkie.com reports that it took female MMA superstar Gina Carano multiple times to make weight for her fight at EliteXC: Heat.
...Gina Carano failed to make the 141-pound limit weight on her first few attempts. She first weighed in at 142.75 pounds. Although visibly embarrassed at the necessary next step, Carano appeared intent on not missing weight for yet another EliteXC card.
Behind the cover of four separate towels in front and behind the undefeated young fighter, Carano removed all of her clothes and stepped back on the scales. An incredulous Carano showed her frustration and presumed embarrassment when the scale showed 142.5 pounds.
Officials on stage suggested a third attempt might be beneficial as the scales appeared to have an issue during the second attempt. After Carano stepped on the scales a third time, an acceptable weight of 141 pounds was registered. The weight was one pound over the contracted 140-pound limit, but the same as Carano's opponent, Kelly Kobald.
And the entertainment didn't stop with a naked Gina Carano. Jake Shields and Paul Daley had to be pulled apart after Daley spewed obscenities at Shields during the stare down. Then, instead of Kimbo Slice posing for the obligatory post weigh-in pictures with Ken Shamrock, Slice turned his back to the UFC veteran and tried to walk away. Shamrock didn't take too kindly to being disrespected, so he pushed Slice from behind and brawl number two of the night broke out.
If the fights tomorrow night can match the energy of the weigh-ins, we're in for a hell of a night of fights.
