UPDATE: John Molina Jr. did not make his weight after the two-hour-period, Molina weighed in at 143.4. While negotiations are still going on Molina released a statement:

"I apologize to the fans, no excuses I should've made the weight, by no mistake did we not prepare. My body just rejected the cut. Everyone knows me, I've never missed weight before. From me to you, as a Nebraskan, I apologize. We did everything the same in camp, prepared just like the Provodnikov fight. My body just can't make 140 any longer. I'm 33 years old now and i squeezed every drop out but my body just wouldn't cooperate. I take full consequences and I will give 100% tomorrow night, the fans will definitely get their money's worth."
