KSW 67 is set to go down Saturday, with a heavyweight title fight topping the card — but the show hit a number of roadblocks during Friday’s weigh-in.

A full three fighters missed weight for the event, while a fourth was not medically cleared to compete, leading to one bout being cancelled.

The fighter in question was Brazil’s Caio Bittencourt, who was expected to face Ivan Erslan. Bitencourt, who was entering the bout off a loss on Dana White’s Contender Series, had taken the fight on short notice after Hasan Mezhiev tested positive for COVID-19.

Unfortunately, Bittencourt was not medically cleared to compete, leading to the fight being scratched.

The three fighters who missed weight, meanwhile, are: Andrzej Grzebyk, who missed weight by one pound and was fined 30% of his purse, Filip Pejic, who missed weight by one pound, and was also fined 30% of his purse, and finally, Idris Amizhaev — who missed weight by a country mile. Amizhaev came in a full seven pounds heavy for a 176lb catchweight, and was fined 50% of his purse.
