Challenger loses UFC title shot before bout begins
Lutter was supposed to fight champion Anderson Silva tonight in Las Vegas with the crown on the line. Instead, Lutter missed Friday's weight-in by 1.5 pounds. He tipped the scales at 187 Friday, more than the 185-pound limit. He was given two hours to trim down, but could only muster a 186.5-pound reading.
Consequently, Saturday's title bout and marquee matchup in UFC 67: All of Nothing is now a three-round non-title fight.
Congrats to Lutter for throwing his one-and-only shot at glory out the window.
