202 EARLY WEIGH-INS

Most of the 202 Showdown competitors were on hand for the early weigh-ins, with the exception of Clarence DeVis and Stan McQuay. Both Eduardo Correa and Mark Dugdale missed the 202 cutoff but have until tomorrow to drop the extra pound needed to make the show. Bet on both men standing on stage this Saturday.

Early numbers have last year's 202 runner-up Kevin English weighing in at 201.6, with Flex Lewis - the third-place finisher in last year's showdown - tipping the scales right at the 202 mark ... in clothes.
