UFC Vegas 90 took a big hit on Friday morning when four fighters missed weight and one fight was called off. The 13-fight card was widdled down to 12 after Cynthia Calvillo missed weight stepping on the scale three pounds heavy for her bout with Piera Rodriguez. This is not the first time Calvillo has missed weight. She has missed twice before and is on a five-fight losing streak.

But that wasn't the only weight miss. The card openers Nora Cornolle and Melissa Mullins weighed in heavy too at 138.5 and 138 pounds. Their fight was rescheduled for a catchweight.

And the biggest, or highest miss came via Alexander Hernandez. The co-main event fighter stepped on the scales at 150 pounds but was given an additional hour and cut down to 147.5. His fight with Damon Jackson is still on.

Thankfully, the main event between Brendan Allen and Chris Curtis went untouched as both fighters made 186 pounds for their middleweight bout. We'll have to see how the fighters who missed weight perform on Saturday night.
