Alo, Lee make weight ahead of MMA clash

By Ivan Saldajeno

MANILA—Miguel Alo and Lee Min-Hyeok are good to go for the headliner of Fight Night 3, a collaboration of Cage Gladiators Hitman MMA.

After the official weigh-in on Saturday, both Alo and Lee made the 155-pound limit for their showdown.

“This is my first time to be competing in the main event of a mixed martial arts event, so I look forward to this. I really hope I can give the Filipino fans a good show,” Kim said

But Alo insisted, “This is not to say I am underestimating my opponent. It is too early to judge, but I am confident in my skills and experience as I have been fighting for a decade now.”

All the fighters who are scheduled for their respective matches on Sunday night at the SM North EDSA Skydome actually made weight.

The other Philippines versus South Korea battle, the co-main event pitting Dennis Domingo and Kim Jae-Woong, even had both fighters well within the limit as Kim came in at 153.5 pounds and Domingo tipped the scales at an even lighter 151.
