It took lying bare and exhausted at the locker room floor on the UFC Performance Institute for Rick Glenn to determine that his days as a featherweight have been over.
Of course, the Iowan went down fighting, however he nevertheless had a weigh-in to get thru and a combat to combat in opposition to Kevin Aguilar to get thru on November 30, 2018, but the die changed into cast.
“I always told myself if I ever miss weight, I’m going up a weight class,” said Glenn, who came in at 148.5 pounds for the Aguilar fight, then lost a unanimous decision the next night. “I pushed it to the very end. I’ve gone through this weight cut for years. I’ve been at ’45 for a long time and it just caught up to me. It was too much.”
