Masvidal, Kotani and Mills Miss Weight for ASTRA

Filed under: ,

TOKYO, Japan — Jorge Masvidal, his opponent Naoyuki Kotani,and Che Mills all came in overweight ahead of Sunday’s ASTRA event to be held at the Nippon Budokan.

All fighters will have another chance to attempt to make weight again later Saturday but Masvidal was noticeably struggling and could be seen lying on the floor outside prior to the press conference.

Also, although it is an open weight bout, in the headlining teacher vs. student bout, Hidehiko Yoshida surprisingly came in over 40 pounds heavier than pupil Kazuhiro Nakamura.

“I was surprised because I didn’t know that there was that much weight difference,” Nakamura said. “But probably my advantage is speed and I would like to use my advantage to fight against him.”
