UFC Vegas 64 was a Fight Night card where nothing, seemingly, wanted to go according to plan.
Ahead of the Las Vegas-based event, what had been a promising headliner between undefeated featherweights fell through when Movsar Evloev pulled out of his fight with Bryce Mitchell. Arkansas native Mitchell was then pulled from the card altogether, with a strawweight match-up between contenders Marina Rodriguez and Amanda Lemos promoted to the main event slot.
Worse, the arrival of Lemos and several other Brazilian fighters in Las Vegas was delayed due to unrest following Brazil’s recent presidential election. Whether that would impact weight cuts or performance remained to be seen, but it certainly wasn’t a welcome turn of events.
Weigh-ins for UFC Vegas 64 go down Friday morning in Las Vegas; full results can be found below.
A full five fighters initially missed weight for UFC Vegas 64, a dubious but historic number. Those fighters are Grant Dawson, Shanna Young, Benito Lopez, Carlos Candelario, and Ramona Pascual. In Young’s case, she was granted an extra hour to make weight, and after cutting her hair, did so on her third attempt. Young came in at 126lbs, leaving four fighters heavy.
