With just one fighter missing the mark, PFL 2’s weigh-ins went off nearly flawlessly, paving the way for what should be an exciting night of fights in Chicago on Thursday.

On Wednesday, all fighters from PFL 2 in Chicago stepped on the scales at the Chicago Theater, and all fights are good to go. In fact, there was but one hiccup in the proceedings. Former UFC competitor Efrain Escudero failed to make weight, coming in at 162lbs for his lightweight fight against Jason High.

It’s worth noting that Escudero took the bout on just six days notice. Still, the miss means he will not be eligible to win any points in the bout, though he may still factor in later in the tournament. His fight with High, however, remains on the card.

Check out the full weigh-ins from PFL 2 in Chicago:

In the featured fight between Olympian Kayla Harrison and Brittney Elkin, both fighters made the lightweight limit. And light heavyweight Sean O’Connell had a little fun, busting out some Chicago Deep Dish for opponent Ronny Markes.

“Based on what I saw today at the weigh-ins, I know that PFL2 is going to be just as phenomenal as our debut at Madison Square Garden,” said Carlos Silva, League President of PFL via press release. “Our athletes have been training hard and are ready to face off and compete for our $10 million prize pool. Fans are in for incredible match-ups and Kayla’s debut should be electric.”
