Twenty-one of the 22 fighters on the card successfully made weight, with the lone miss coming from CJ Vergara, who came in a whopping three pounds over the flyweight limit at 129 pounds. Tatsuro Taira weighed in at 126 pounds for the preliminary bout. Per UFC officials, the fight will move forward with Vergara forfeiting 30 percent of his purse.

One fight was also scratched from the card as weight management issues from Askar Askarov scratched the highly anticipated flyweight featured bout with Brandon Royval from the card.
