The M-1 Challenge held its weigh-ins Thursday at the Argosy Casino & Hotel in Kansas City in anticipation of Friday’s 15-bout card at the Memorial Hall. However, a last-minute change prevented all 30 fighters from weighing in.

Team England will be taking on Team France on this show, which starts at 2am UK time on Saturday Morning.

Full weigh-in results are available below with pictures also available at

6. Lightweight (154 lbs./-70 kg.) - **Ian Butlin (England - 155.76 lbs.) vs. Makhtar Gueye (France - 153.78 lbs.)

** Ian Butlin met the Kansas Boxing Commission weight requirements but did not meet M-1’s. However, Team France waived their right to protest Butlin’s failure to make weight due to England agreeing not to file a protest for Gael Grimaud not weighing in on Friday.
