- Andrey Klimov was 129.85 pounds. Gabino Cota was 129.4.

- Eduard Troyanovskiy came in at 140 pounds. Jose Augustin Feria weighed 139.8.



- Sergey Lipinets was 139.6 pounds. Ernie Sanchez came in at 140.4 ( Note: Sanchez later stepped on the scales for a second time and was 139.6 pounds)

- Egor Mekhontsev weighed 174.4 pounds. Joey Vegas was 177.25.



- Dmitry Bivol was 179 pounds. Jorge Rodriguez Olvera was 173.3.
