It was an eventful afternoon at the Ultimate Fight Night 18 weigh-ins at the Sommet Center in Nashville. Two fighters missed weight, another fight was canceled by the Tennessee Athletic Commission and the most heated fight on the card almost saw Cole Miller slap Junie Browning during their face off.
Watch Miller get in Browning's grill (1:27 mark):
Ryan Jensen was looking for his first win in the UFC but when he disclosed to the Tennesse Athletic Commission that he had used the drug Adderall, his fight against Steve Steinbeiss was canceled. Tim Credeur tested positive for the same drug before The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale. That TUF 7 fight against Cale Yarbrough was canceled. Adderall is used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Narcolespy.
Gleison Tibau missed weight at 156.5 pounds but was a lot closer to the lightweight limit of 155 than his opponent Jeremy Stephens, who came in at 158. That fight will be at a catch weight of 158.
