Nevada Commission approves early weigh-ins for UFC events

By Damon Martin, www.FOXsports.com
The Nevada State Athletic Commission voted to approve early weigh-ins for International Fight Week in Las Vegas, which encompasses UFC 200, "The Ultimate Fighter" 23 Finale and UFC Fight Night: dos Anjos vs. Alvarez.

The governing body overseeing MMA regulation in Nevada voted unanimously to approve the measure presented to them on Tuesday by UFC vice president of athlete health and perofrmance Jeff Novitsky, who argued that the earlier weigh-ins have been unanimously applauded by officials and athletes alike.

The new measures were first introduced in the UFC in June at an event held in Inglewood, Calif. where the commission there headed up by executive director Andy Foster already approved the weigh-ins rules earlier this year.
