If you watched yesterday’s weigh-ins for UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen then you most likely noticed that one fighter didn’t make the official UFC weight limit. That was UFC welterweight Nick Catone, who missed weight by over 3 pounds and lost 20% of his purse. Today, it’s reported by a number of media sources that Catone has been hospitalized due to dehydration.

Unfortunetly, James Head will need to sit this one out tonight, but will still receive his show money. It’s a tough break for both fighters, and hope to see them back in the Octagon in the very near future.
