No problems making weight for any of the featured fighters on Saturday’s world championship tripleheader. Martirosyan and Andrade got into each other’s face during their face-off and had to be separated. No smiles, no handshakes between Donaire and Darchinyan after an intense face-off. Afterward, Vic proclaimed “Rigo schooled him, I’m going to finish him and send him into retirement.”
