Weight cutting problems come up once again for Melvin Guillard and Cody Bollinger.

Cody Bollinger's chances of being a UFC fighter ended when he failed to make weight against Anthony Gutierrez on season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter. Melvin Guillard's downward spiral towards his own UFC exit included missing weight in an eventual KO loss against Donald Cerrone at UFC 150. For Guillard, a World Series of Fighting debut awaited him tomorrow against Gesias Cavalcante, while Bollinger's 2nd WSOF bout was to be against Pablo Alfonso, potentially to determine the #1 contender at bantamweight for champion Marlon Moraes. Big fights for both men seeking some form of redemption after their recent setbacks ...

...And they both missed weight yet again.

Bollinger's first weighed in at 138.4 lbs and didn't even attempt to cut the 2.6 lbs necessary to make the bantamweight limit. Meanwhile, Guillard weighed in at 159.2 lbs on his first attempt, then 157.2 on his second. Guillard has forfeited 15% of his purse to Cavalcante, while Bollinger forks over 20% to Alfonso.

Melvin Guillard was interviewed by our own Steph Daniels on Thursday, and he told her that he not only had plans to become WSOF's lightweight champion, but also their featherweight belt holder. He also stated that he was coming into his fight with Cavalcante "a few pounds lighter" than he usually does. For someone who has developed a legacy of failing to reach his potential, primarily through inconsistent performances, failing to make weight in a new promotion just adds another unenviable chapter into his story.

In other weigh-in related news, Jon Fitch and Dennis Hallman agreed to a last-minute bump up to middleweight, with Fitch at 183 lbs and Hallman at 181.2.

Bloody Elbow will have live coverage of World Series of Fighting 11 tomorrow at 2 PM ET/11 AM PT, which includes streaming video of the prelims and (for non-US viewers only) the entire main card.
