UFC 244 is a go — here’s a glimpse at the Friday’s weigh-in, complete with main event players Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal hitting the scales.
Darren Till may have arrived in New York City late, but it was opponent Kelvin Gastelum causing a stir at Friday’s UFC 244 weigh-in. Jenneifer Maia may have hurt her chances at a title shot, while back-up fighter Jared Cannonier missed weight for a fight he won’t be needed in.
That was just some of the fun to be found at the UFC 244 weigh-in. Full results, video, and a gallery of highlights from Friday’s proceedings can be found below!
