One athlete missed the mark for the 2023 PFL 2 card at Thursday’s official weigh-in.

Olena Kolesnyk, set to fight UFC veteran Aspen Ladd, missed the featherweight limit by 0.4lbs, and did not continue her cut for the Las Vegas-based event, scheduled to take place on Friday night at The Theater at Virgin Hotels.

As a result, Kolesnyk has been fined 20% of her purse — and will be deducted one point from the regular season standings on top.

PFL 2 is headlined by Larissa Pacheco, last year’s women’s lightweight champ, making the move back to 145lbs to take on former Bellator MMA champion Julia Budd. Yorgan De Castro, originally booked against last year’s heavyweight champion Ante Delija, has seen two opponent switches, and now gets Danilo Marques.

All other fighters made weight for Friday’s card. Full results can be found below.
