The shell has tripped several UFC Vegas 64 fighters.
Five fighters missed weight in Friday’s official weigh-in for Saturday’s card, which takes place at UFC APEX in Las Vegas, with Carlos Candelario and Benito Lopez both going 2.5 pounds over the limit for their respective fights. Lightweight contender Grant Dawson missed the weight by 1.5 pounds, while bantamweight Ramona Pascual and flyweight Shanna Young missed a pound.
Young later successfully put on weight on her second attempt and came in at 126 pounds.
This marks the second time in Dawson’s UFC career that he has missed weight after moving 3.5lbs over the featherweight limit for a fight with Darrick Minner in February 2020. He steps in to fight Mark Madsen with a notice period of less than three weeks as a replacement for Drakkar Klose.
Lopez missed weight for what will be his first fight since July 2019.
Candelario, Lopez and Pascual’s fights will continue as catchweights according to the UFC, with all three losing 20 percent of their wallets as punishment. The status of Dawson’s fight is not yet known.
Strawweight headliners Marina Rodriguez and Amanda Lemos have successfully put on weight, as have co-main event welterweights Neil Magny and Daniel Rodriguez.
