Newark, NJ — The full card hit the scales on Friday morning for UFC 302’s official weigh-in, with the entire affair taking just over an hour, and only one fighter failing to make weight for the first of two UFC Pay-Per-Views in the month of June.

That fighter was Andre Lima, who came in well over the flyweight limit at 130lbs. As a result, opponent Mitch Raposo will pick up 30% of Lima’s purse, but the fight at least moved forward.

Joselyne Edwards nearly hit a snag during her own weigh-in, part of a grudge match with Ailin Perez. Edwards initially came in one pound over for the women’s bantamweight fight, but after immediately stripping down, she successfully made 136lbs.

Dustin Poirier and lightweight champ Islam Makhachev headline Saturday’s card in Newark, and both were among the first fighters to weigh in. Sean Strickland, set for a five-round co-main event with Paulo Costa that could produce a number one contender for the winner of Dricus Du Plessis vs. Israel Adesanya (expected to come next), also weighed in early. As for Costa, he was last to hit the scales, about an hour and a quarter in, but made championship weight to cheers of “secret juice.”

Full results from Friday’s UFC 302 weigh-in, with Cageside Press on hand, and a gallery of highlights from both the official and ceremonial weigh-ins, can be found below.
