Complications at the Scales
In an even split, two amateurs and two professionals were removed from Saturday’s event. Top-ranked amateur competitor, Mitch Raposo fell victim to a last moment withdrawal. His opponent, Matt Lyall withdrew in the late evening following weigh-ins. Raposo was set to make his professional debut at Cage Titans 42. Now that venture must wait.
The second fight to fall through for Cage Titans 42 happened prior to Raposo losing his opponent. Chris McDonnell weighed in at 145 for his 130 catchweight bout against Felipe Barboza. Due to the massive miss, McDonnell was pulled from the card and Barboza became a subsequent casualty.
In total, three fighters missed weight Friday. Yet only one caused a cancellation of a fight. Undefeated pro, Zach DiSabatino missed weight by a single pound. The other to miss was amateur Ed Forlenza, as he came in at 148 for his featherweight matchup against Stavros Batsinelas. Forlenza was a short notice replacement.
