Two fighters miss marks in Las Vegas

November 18th, 2023

LAS VEGAS – MMA Junkie was on scene and reporting live from Friday’s official UFC Fight Night 232 fighter weigh-ins.

The weigh-ins took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The same venue hosts Saturday’s event, which streams on ESPN+.

Among those weighing in were Brendan Allen (22-5 MMA, 10-2 UFC) and Paul Craig (17-6-1 MMA, 9-6-1 UFC), who meet in the middleweight main event, and welterweights Jake Matthews (19-6 MMA, 12-6 UFC) and Michael Morales (15-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC), who fight in the co-feature. All those notables did their job on the scale.

Lower on the card, however, Lucas Alexander and Rafael Estevam were both two pounds overweight for their respective bouts in the featherweight and flyweight divisions.
