The full UFC Vegas 44 card weighed in Friday in Las Vegas without incident. Well, almost.
No misses, no second attempts, no barriers. While a handful of fighters hit the scales late in the two-hour window, everyone hit their mark. Cheyanne Buys hit the scales first for her strawweight fight with Mallory Martin. Manel Kape, the former RIZIN bantamweight champion, stepped on the scales last, but successfully made weight for his flyweight bout.
Then, just moments after the weigh-in window ended, it was announced that the heavyweight fight between Jared Vanderaa and Azamat Murzakonov was off the card. Although COVID protocols were initially to blame, UFC officials later clarified that Vanderaa had not been cleared to compete, for non-COVID related reasons.
