The UFC 254 weigh-ins are complete, and the main event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje is official!
Also official is the co-main event between Jared Cannonier and Robert Whittaker. In fact, all fighters on the main card successfully made weight. Backup fighter for the main event Michael Chandler also made weight at 155, but his services will not be required, as both Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje hit the 155 mark.
There were two misses, however. Alex Oliveira missed the welterweight limit by two pounds and will forfeit 20% of his fight purse to Shavkat Rakhmonov. Lightweight Joey Alvarez was over three pounds over the lightweight limit and will forfeit 30% of his fight purse to Alexander Yakovlev.
UFC 254 main card airs live at 2:00 ET on pay-per-view streaming exclusively on ESPN+ with prelims on ESPN2 and ESPN+ starting at 12 PM ET. The UFC Fight Pass Prelims kick off at 11:00 AM ET.
