UFC Fight Island 2: Kattar, Ige make weight one eve of second Abu Dhabi fight card

The second of four events on ‘Fight Island’ kicks off on Wednesday.

By John Balfe - 14 Jul 2020

The UFC’s second of four events in Abu Dhabi is official after this morning’s weigh-ins on ‘Fight Island’.

Both men in the featherweight main event, Calvin Kattar (146) and Dan Ige (145), registered weights within the non-title limit of 146-pounds ahead of what should be a fiercely competitive fight. Both men in the co-main, flyweights Tim Elliot and Ryan Benoit, also set their weights within the divisional limit of 126-pounds.

It wasn’t all plain sailing on the scales, however. Abdul Razak Alhassan missed weight by three pounds ahead of his welterweight fight with Mounir Lazzez while former Cage Warriors champion Chris Fishgold was also three pounds over the featherweight limit ahead of his fight with Jared Gordon.

Kenneth Bergh, the Norwegian light heavyweight, was scratched from the card after complaining of issues during his weight cut so his fight with Jorge Gonzalez — who made weight — is off.
