Rarely do you see a heavyweight fighter miss weight, but that was the case on Wednesday ahead of the PFL’s 2024 season debut.

Daniel James, joining the PFL regular season for the first time after a successful stint in Bellator, was set to take on Marcelo Golm, but hit the scales one pound heavy at 267lbs. That has resulted in a point deduction, plus a 20% fine going against James.

James was not alone is missing weight in San Antonio, Texas on Wednesday, as Shanna Young also came in at 128.6lbs for her flyweight fight with Bellator’s Kana Watanabe.

Once again, the show goes on with a point deduction and 20% fine.

All other fighters made weight, including Bellator champ Liz Carmouche, and headlining heavyweights Ante Delija and Valentin Moldavsky.

Full results from Wednesday’s weigh-in can be found below.
