‘The Cuban Missile Crisis’ had a bit of a crisis at weigh-ins Thursday, as Julian Marquez was the only fighter to miss weight for The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale.

The twenty-seventh (and perhaps penultimate) edition of The Ultimate Fighter comes a close Friday, July 6. In advance of the Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale, weigh-ins took place Thursday, with every fighter stepping on the scale making weight — except one. With just thirty minutes to go in the weigh in period, former Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series star Julian Marquez was the last to step on the scales. When he did, he came in four pounds over the middleweight limit (186lbs for non-title fights) at 190lbs.

That was the only snag in an otherwise spotless weigh-in. It remains to be seen whether Marquez vs. Alessio Di Chirico moves forward.

Of course, UFC 226 on Saturday was thrown into disarray when featherweight champion Max Holloway was taken to hospital, resulting in his title defense against Brian Ortega being pulled from the card. UFC 226 weigh-ins will take place tomorrow.

The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale takes place Friday, July 6 at the Pearl Theater in Las Vegas, NV. The card airs on Fox Sports 1 (TSN 3 in Canada).
