TOKYO – Mizuto Hirota was the last fighter to weigh in today for UFC Fight Night 117, and once he finally made it to the scale, it wasn’t pretty.

Every other fighter weighed in during the first 40 minutes of the two-hour weigh-in window, but Hirota didn’t arrive and hit the scale until the final minutes.

Once there, Hirota (18-8-2 MMA, 1-3-1 UFC), who meets fellow featherweight Charles Rosa (11-3 MMA, 2-3 UFC) in Friday’s UFC Fight Night 117 main-card opener, looked dazed. In fact, after a slow walk to weigh in, he stumbled a bit off the scale and needed help from the officials. And as he bowed to the crowd, he was slow to get back upright.

Check out his weigh-in above.

Officially, Hirota, a 36-year-old Japanese fighter who was on a 4-0-1 run before a recent decision loss to Alexander Volkanovski, weighed 150 pounds – four pounds over the 146-pound limit for his fight, which airs on FXX on from Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

The bout, though, is scheduled to go on. As MMAjunkie first reported, Hirota has been fined 30 percent of his fight purse, which goes to opponent Rosa.
