UFC 249

The UFC is returning with live fights this weekend, and the weigh-ins for tomorrow’s UFC 249 event were held earlier today. The main and co-main event title fighters are on weight and ready to go for the fight card. However, one fighter did miss weight for the event.

In the main event, Tony Ferguson (155 pounds) will face Justin Gaethje (155 pounds) for the interim lightweight title. In the co-main event, bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo (135 pounds) will defend the title against former champion Dominick Cruz (135 pounds). All the title competitors made weight earlier today.

The only fighter who failed to make weight is Jeremy Stephens for his scheduled featherweight fight against Calvin Kattar (146 pounds). Stephens weighed in heavy at 150.5 pounds. Stephens has been fined 30 percent of his purse. It appears that as of now, the fight will move forward. This is the third time Stephens has missed weight in his UFC career.
