Jinh Yu Frey vs. Janaisa Morandin is off. Morandin was five pounds over weight. Really.
Said Frey on Instagram:
“Unfortunately my fight has been scratched,” Frey said on her official Instagram account. “My opponent came in 5.2 lbs over the weight limit. We knew she probably would and we’re willing to accept up to 3.5 lbs over. We also offered a stipulation that she would have to do a same day weigh in prior to the fight and not weigh over 116. This did not come to fruition. I am disappointed after the work I put in for camp and the weight cut. I am also upset that the people who put their faith in me for this camp have been let down.”
