UFC president Dana White has opened up about the possibility of hiring a “scale security guard” in the aftermath of the weigh-in nightmares that occured prior to UFC 274 last weekend.

Dana White believes fighters “start f****** with the scale” the night before weigh-in

Although UFC 274 featured a mouth-watering, heavily stacked fight card last Saturday night at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, did not have a hassle free build up to the event.

The fundamental issue being several fighters facing problems during the weigh-in, and the focal point of it was linked to the main event between Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje. Oliveira, who initially weighed in at 155.5, was stripped off of his lightweight belt after failing to make weight and couldn’t make things work even after he was granted one extra hour to do so.

In the press conference that followed afterward, Dana White insisted on bringing in extra security to prevent any reoccurrence of the mess that went down ahead of UFC 274.

“We have this issue where guys come out and they’ll start checking the scale the night before and all the Europeans and guys from other parts of the world do kilos, so they all start f****** with the scale to look at kilos and, who knows… ,” said White.

“There’s so many moving parts to this beast of a machine that we run every week, and we’ve got to have a security guard in there where the scale is now. It’s something we’re going to have to do,” the UFC prez added. [H/T MMA Fighting]

Highlights:

  • UFC president Dana White wants to appoint scale security guards for future events in the wake of the weigh-in issue at UFC 274
  • A number of fighters including Charles Oliveira had issues in making weight and Oliveira was even stripped off of his lightweight title
