Twenty-six fighters were set to hit the scales Friday morning for the UFC Fort Lauderdale official weigh-in, with Jacare Souza and Jack Hermansson topping the bill.
UFC Fort Lauderdale was to take place in Miami. It was to air on ESPN. However, the card that was to be UFC on ESPN 3 wound up shifted to Sunrise, Florida (yet has been marketed as UFC Fort Lauderdale). And while a main event of Jacare Souza vs. Yoel Romero had been anticipated, an illness suffered by Romero allowed Jack Hermansson to step up. Now, it’s Jacare vs. The Joker topping what is now a Fight Night event (UFC Fight Night 150, for those counting, or UFC on ESPN+ 8).
Friday morning, all fighters hit the scales, and there were a few to keep an eye on, including John Lineker, who has had perhaps more struggles at the scale than any other current UFC fighter.
The official weigh-ins kick off at 9AM ET — check back for updates!
The good news Friday morning — all fighters made weight for Saturday’s ESPN+ card! Gilbert Burns weighed in last, with the help of a towel, but his the lightweight limit.
