WMMA fightersThe weigh-ins for Worldwide Mixed Martial Arts’ inaugural charitable event, McCorkle vs. Heden: Fighting for a Better World, took place on Friday in El Paso, Texas.

Unrestrained by the 265-pound heavyweight limit from when he fought in the UFC, Sean McCorkle stepped on the scale at 312 pounds for his super heavyweight main event showdown with Brian Heden, who tipped the scale at 287 pounds.

Co-main eventers Thomas Denny and Karo Parisyan and the rest of the WMMA 1 cast all made weight as well, setting the stage for Saturday night’s fights at the Don Haskins Center.

A portion of the proceeds goes to benefit service men and women via Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) and the U.S. Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2).
