Jason High dishes on Efrain Escudero's big weigh-in miss for PFL 2 fight

Jason High meets Efrain Escudero tonight at PFL 2 in a lightweight regular-season opener for both fighters, but only High is eligible to earn points toward the playoffs for a $1 million grand prize.That’s because Escudero (29-13) came in six pounds over the 156-pound weight limit, which was the latest last-minute curve ball thrown at High (21-6) as Escudero stepped in just last week as a replacement opponent forRashid Magomedov.
High, who negotiated up to receive 25 percent of Escudero’s purse, told MMAjunkie Radio he was informed before weigh-ins that Escudero would weigh 160. Then he came in two pounds higher than that, which was frustrating.
On Wednesday, High told MMAjunkie Radio that he took the mishap in stride as best he could.
“There’s always things that come up like that,” High said. “You know, it’s part of the game. There isn’t any sense in wasting any energy on it.”
PFL 2 takes place tonight at Chicago Theatre in Chicago. The main card airs on NBCSN following prelims streamed live on Facebook.
