In traditional UFC fashion, the world’s largest Mixed Martial Arts promotion held their early weigh ins event this morning ahead of Saturday’s UFC Atlantic City Fight Night event.
Fighters scheduled to fight tomorrow night hit the scales to make their contracted bouts official.
Unfortunately, this morning’s event was not without incident, as one fight was cancelled, and another two fighters missed weight.
Top female prospect Aspen Ladd missed her weight by nearly two pounds, and decided not to make a second attempt.
Magomed Bibulatov pulled out of his fight on 24-hours notice with a last minute injury. He was scheduled to fight Ulka Sasaki on Saturday’s televised prelims.
Main event fighter Kevin Lee missed weight by a pound.
