Conquer 4 Weigh-In Results & Recap

The calories were already cut and the thought of another visit to the gym was the last thing on the minds of the mixed martial artists slated to appear on Conquer Fighting Championships’ fourth event, Conquer 4, yet each of the thirty combatants staggered into Performance Fitness & Mixed Martial Arts for the promotional weigh-ins.

In twenty-four hours—June 24, 2017, those hungry to refuel their systems are starving to dot the center of Conquer’s canvas before the eyes of everyone inside the Craneway Pavilion, home of Conquer FC, as well as the MMA enthusiasts logged into FloCombat.com.

Prior to shifting the needle on the scale, fighters filed into various lines, completing the paperwork and physicals required to receive the green light for tomorrow night. In addition to the typical check-up from doctors and inking the final lines of their contract, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC), under their new set of guidelines to govern fighter safety, necessitated neurological testing, which, according to many of the fighters, left their heads spinning more than a concussive right hand. Examples of this testing included: connecting strings of letters and numbers on an iPad, reciting a series of given numbers—forward and backward, and demonstrating balance on a square, styrofoam surface.

Once all the amateur and professional fighters checked the necessary boxes, it was time to move one step closer to their feeding and step on the scale.

Typically, an exit off the scale meant an entrance into a buffet line for these sunk in individuals. Unfortunately, Conquer 4’s roster, also in conjunction with CSAC’s 2017 mandates, must return on fight day without being more than eight-percent of their weight at registered on the scale.
