It feels like forever and a day since we last saw Yair Rodriguez inside the octagon. In actual matter of fact, it has been over two years. That all comes to an end this weekend, where, after several false starts (first against Zabit Magomedsharipov, then initially against Max Holloway), the Mexican featherweight finally returns.
Holloway, meanwhile, will be looking to build off his stunning performance against Calvin Katter earlier this year. While a third fight with current champ Alexander Volkanovski would be a hard sell, it’s not outside the realm of possibility for “Blessed,” mainly because, well, this is Max Holloway we’re talking about.
Weigh-ins for UFC Vegas 42 go down Friday in Las Vegas, kicking off at 12PM ET. Check below for results!
Joel Alvarez, a fighter that was noted in this week’s edition of the Weight Cutting Chronicles, hit the scales early in the window, and missed the mark by 1.5lbs. Liana Jojua also came in heavy at 2.5lbs.
