The scale tripped up several UFC Vegas 64 fighters.
Five fighters missed weight at Friday’s official weigh-ins for Saturday’s card, which takes place at UFC APEX in Las Vegas, with Carlos Candelario and Benito Lopez both coming in 2.5 pounds over the limit for their respective bouts. Lightweight contender Grant Dawson missed weight by 1.5 pounds, while bantamweight Ramona Pascual and flyweight Shanna Young missed by one pound.
Young later successfully made weight on her second attempt, coming in at 126 pounds.
This is the second time in Dawson’s UFC career that he has missed weight after coming in 3.5 pounds over the limit as a featherweight for a fight with Darrick Minner in February 2020. He is stepping in to fight Mark Madsen on less than three weeks’ notice as a replacement for Drakkar Klose.
Lopez missed weight ahead of what will be his first fight since July 2019.
Candelario, Lopez, and Pascual’s bouts will proceed as catchweights per the UFC, with all three forfeiting 20 percent of their purse as penalty. The status of Dawson’s bout is not yet known.
