Cynthia Calvillo returns to competition at this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 140 event when she battles Poliana Botelho in the opening bout of the main card.
Calvillo (6-1) makes her first appearance in almost a year after being given a nine-month suspension from the UFC after testing positive for marijuana.
The early weigh-ins took place this Friday morning and Calvillo appeared to be in very bad condition. The Team Alpha Male standout struggled to walk to the scales, appeared to be in distress and almost fell off the scale. She ultimately failed to make weight, coming in at 118-pounds. Her opponent, Poliana Botelho, successfully made weight after coming in at 115.5 pounds. The fight is expected to go ahead as planned, Calvillo will be fined 20% of her fight purse.
