***Main card fighter Chad Bellwood failed to make weight for his 155 lb. contest against Darcy James. According to the Vernon Athletic Commission's Vice Chairman, Saleem Taj, both fighters have agreed to fight as scheduled, but that Bellwood will surrender %20 of his purse to his opponent.

Ethan Owusa has pulled out of his fight due to illness. Owusa was set to make his professional debut against Ryan Billingal. He will be replaced by Leith Optland (1-1) who impressed Vernon fans at EFC 8 in October by pulling off a submission victory over a bigger, stronger opponent in Jules Russel.

Amateur fighter Cam Deleume initially weighed in at 150 lbs. for his 145 lb. contest against Curran Allen. After sweating off the remaining pounds, Deleume eventually weighted in at an acceptable 146 lbs.

South Korean co-main event fighter Chang Hyun "Armbar" Kim (14-5) also had some difficulty making weight, which he blamed on the fact that the weight classes are different in his homeland and in Japan. This being his first fight in Canada, he was forced to drop several more pounds than he is accustomed to. He did, however, eventually make it to an acceptable 157 lbs.
