We’ve got the UFC 253 weigh-in results. UFC 253 is tomorrow night on Fight Island and the MMA world is abuzz about the middleweight title fight between champion Israel Adesanya and Paulo Costa. The entire main card of the event is pretty fun, but the main event has everyone interested. Before the fighters can step into the Octagon, they must first step on the scale.
The fighters took to the scales today and most made weight. That said, two fighters missed, each by a whopping four pounds. Zubaira Tukhugov, who is scheduled to take on Hakeem Dawodu came in at 150 pounds, four pounds over the 146-pound weight limit.
In another fight scheduled for the featherweight division, Ludovit Klein missed by the same four pounds. He is taking the fight against Shane Young on one-weeks notice. It has been announced that Zubaira Tukhugov and Hakeem Dawodu will still meet in the Octagon with a percentage of Tukhugov’s purse going to Dawodu.
The fight with Ludovit Klein and Nate Landwehr hasn’t been made official. The fighters did meet for a faceoff though. In all likelihood, the fight will take place with Shane Young getting a percentage of Ludovit’s 12,000.00 purse.
