Cody East and Damacio Page Make Weight for Legacy FC 36 Championship Fights
Earlier today the co-promoted Legacy Fighting Championship and Fresquez Productions Legacy FC 36 card weigh-in took place inside the Legends Theater at the Route 66 Casino just outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The headlining fighters main event, Cody East and Vernon Lewis easily made weight for their heavyweight championship match as did the co-main event participants Damacio Page and Brian Hall for their flyweight championship match.
There was some confusion that took place during the Rafael “Barata” de Freitas and Jordan Espinosa bout weigh-in. Espinosa weighed in at 127.2lbs, .2 pounds over what Espinosa would say was the +/-2lbs contracted amount in his agreement. When Espinosa offered to remove his underwear to make the .2lbs de Freitas trainer Melcor Chavez would respond that +/-1lb was in their contract, causing confusion among those in attendance and the commission.
After a post-weigh-in discussion according to Espinosa, he would not only be vindicated but would also not have to cut the .2lbs, a weight he would have easily made either way.
Another notable issue was the abscence of Clint Roberts’ opponent Lenny Lovato Jr. who according to sources did finally show up and weigh-in overweight well after the official weigh-in took place.
