Jinh Yu Frey misses weight for Invicta FC 39, vacates atomweight title

Jinh Yu Frey will still fight Friday, but she won’t defend the Invicta FC atomweight championship.

Why? It’s not her’s anymore. Frey (8-4) missed weight by 0.8 pounds at Thursday’s Invicta FC 39 official weigh-ins. As a result, Frey vacated the 105-pound strap ahead of her fight with challenger Ashley Cummins (7-4).

Cummins can still win the title with a victory, but the belt would remain vacant if Frey wins.

Shortly after the weight miss, Frey, who was fined 25 percent of her fight purse, issued a statement on her Instagram page. The former champ said she was humiliated by the miss, deeming it a failure at professionalism.

“To my absolute humiliation, this morning I missed the atomweight championship limit by 0.8 lbs. I have plenty of reasons, but they don’t matter.

I failed in my professionalism. The fight will proceed, but it is now vacant and I will not be fighting for the belt. If I win, I will receive the next title shot. After the event, my husband and I will revisit this and discuss where we go from here and where my future lies. I still have a 5 round fight on the horizon, so for now that will have to await my attention. My apologies to my opponent, her camp, Invicta, and the fans for failing in my duties. But, for now my mind and focus is on tomorrow.”

Invicta FC 39 takes place Friday at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan. The card streams on UFC Fight Pass.
