The weigh-in for Ringside 10 took place this afternoon at La Cage aux Sports located in the Bell Centre, where Saturday’s fight go down. Seventeen of the 18 fighters made weight, including headliners Patrick Côté (184.4 lbs, 13-7) and Kalib Starnes (185.6 lbs, 12-5-1).

Seth Baczynski (169.8 lbs, 12-6) and Alex Garcia (169.8 lbs, 6-0), fighting for an interim Ringside welterweight title were both on target, as was Michel Gagnon (144.8 lbs, 6-1), who will defend his featherweight belt against the undefeated Rejean Groulx (144.2 lbs, 5-0).

Light-heavyweights Martin Desilets (204.2 lbs, 11-2) and Roger Hollet (204.6 lbs, 11-3) shared the afternoon’s most intense and aggressive stare-down, setting the tone for their encounter tomorrow night. (see video below)

Mike Ricci (156.6 lbs, 5-1) was the only fighter not to make weight, missing his contracted 155 lbs limit. Unlike with UFC fights, Quebec’s athletic commission (Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux) did not give Ricci additional time to cut more weight. Twenty per cent of his pay will thus go to his opponent Jesse Ronson (155.4 lbs, 5-1).

UFC play-by-play commentator Mike Goldberg was on hand to support his friend (and UFC francophone play-by-play man) Patrick Côté.
