UFC 245 Weigh-in Results: The Title Fights Are Set, Jose Aldo Hits The Mark, Jessica Eye Misses
The fighters have hit the scales in advance of UFC 245 tomorrow, and all of the bouts are moving ahead.
The early weigh-ins are over for UFC 245, and thankfully, all three of the card’s title fights have been green lit. Not only that, but after days of speculation as to whether Jose Aldo would make the bantamweight limit, the legend did just that.
The title fights are official
The main card for Saturday’s event remains ridiculously stacked, as champs Kamaru Usman, Max Holloway and Amanda Nunes all made championship weight. As did all of their respective opponents, challengers Colby Covington, Alexander Volkvanovki and Germaine de Randamie.
As mentioned above, Aldo came in at 136 pounds for his bout with bantamweight contender, Marlon Moraes (who was 135.5).
The only fighter who didn’t make weight was Jessica Eye, who came five pounds over the allowed limit for her flyweight bout with Viviane Araujo. The fight is proceeding, but Eye will forfeit 30% of her purse.
