The OKTAGON 41 tournament will take place on Saturday, but the traditional weigh-in took place on Friday morning. Al Matavao was among the traditional sinners, and will be wanted by Karlos Vémola for his unprofessionalism on Saturday. He did not weigh in despite adjusting the agreed weight.
Saturday’s tournament of the biggest Czechoslovak MMA organization will offer several attractive duels in Liberec. In the main event, Jonas Magard and Gustavo Lopez will fight for the title, and thanks to the weight cut, both can actually fight for the belt.
Friday’s weigh-ins, however, revealed two sinners. One of them, unsurprisingly, is Al Matavao, who is expected to test the Terminator before his rematch with Patrick Kinceloe. This is far from the first time Matavao has found himself in this situation.
It’s definitely worth noting that the Vémola vs. Matavao fight was announced at the agreed weight of 89 kilograms, only to have the agreed limit changed to 92 kilograms, apparently because of the Samoan fighter.
But incredibly, Matavao didn’t fit into that either. When he stepped on the scale on Friday, he was 95.3 kilograms. So he was overweight by more than three kilograms and had two hours to drop. But he can’t be expected to make the weight.
It was Karlos Vémola who made the weight and weighed 91.6 kilograms.
The other sinner on the scales was home fighter Jan Malach, who will be challenged by Ebrahim Hosseinpour. Their fight is also scheduled at the agreed weight, but now at 73 kilograms.
Malach weighed in at 74.6 kilograms and, like Matavao, has another two hours to drop more than a kilo and a half.
