UFC 183 Weigh-Ins: Anderson Silva And Nick Diaz Hit Their Marks, Kelvin Gastelum And John Lineker Way Over

Anderson Silva

Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz were among the competitors who made weight this afternoon for UFC 183, but John Lineker and Kelvin Gastelum were both way over on their first attempts.

Diaz and Silva will battle in the card’s headliner, and the fighters came in at 185 and 186 for the bout.

Now, as any avid fans knows, Lineker has had trouble making weight in the past, as has Gastelum. Well, Lineker came in at a whopping 130 for his flyweight scrap with Ian McCall, who weighed 126.

Gastelum, on the other hand, weighed 180 for his welterweight fight with Tyron Woodley, who tipped the scales at 1705. So, yeah, the former TUF 17 winner was nine pounds over…
