Just four fighters into the UFC 276 official weigh-in on Friday morning, UFC 276 was official.
Alexander Volkanovski, Max Holloway, Israel Adesanya, and Jared Cannonier were the first four fighters to hit the scales. The champions, fighting out of City Kickboxing, hit the scales back-to-back. No one missed. No one seemed to struggle.
No one was really surprised. Holloway always looks drained on weigh-in day, but he’s been a professional through his career. Same with Volkanovski, who famously walked around north of 200 pounds in his Rugby days. Adesanya? He’s not exactly a massive middleweight. Cannonier? Well, he is, given he’s a former heavyweight, but not issues there either.
And so two title fights are official, Adesanya vs. Cannonier for the middleweight strap, Volkanovski vs. Holloway at featherweight. Many have given Cannonier just a puncher’s chance in his title bid, but there’s no question we could be in for another very close fight between Volkanovski and “Blessed.”
With no other fighters missing at the scales on Friday, the full card is official! Full results and highlights from the official (and later ceremonial) weigh-ins can be found below!
