Anthony Johnson today did not come close to the middleweight mark required for his co-main event bout with Vitor Belfort at UFC 142.

When Johnson stepped on the scales he officially weighed 197 pounds. Officials announced Johnson has been fined 20 percent of his “show” money (which goes to Belfort), and after rehydrating, he can weigh no more than 205 pounds on fight day for the bout to go off.

Vitor Belfort (20-9 MMA, 9-4 UFC), who weighed in at 186 pounds, said he will only take the fight if Johnson (10-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) is no heavier than 205 pounds for the match.
