Pros including Cris Cyborg, Leslie Smith, Sarah Kaufman and Jessica Aguilar react to frightening Cynthia Calvillo weigh-in

Cynthia Calvillo has failed to make weight for this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 140 bout against Poliana Botelho.

Calvillo (6-1) was unable to make the strawweight limit, coming in at 118-pounds. However, what fans found more concerning was the condition in which Calvillo appeared to be in when making her way to the scales. The Team Alpha Male standout appeared barely able to walk, requiring assistance and almost stumbling after making it onto the scale. (Click HERE to see video footage).

The fight is expected to go ahead as planned. Calvillo will be fined 20 percent of her fight purse.

Several MMA stars have reacted to the frightening situation on social media. Take a look below:
