Get ready for a war.
Saturday night’s UFC Vancouver main event bout between lightweight contenders Justin Gaethje and Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone is a go after both men registered on or under their contracted weights at Friday’s early weigh-ins at the Vancouver Hilton. Both men tipped the scales at 155.5 pounds, a half pound under the lightweight non-title limit.
The co-headliner between light heavyweights Glover Teixeira and Nikita Krylov is also official, as is Todd Duffee’s return bout in the UFC heavyweight fold. The only fighter to miss the mark was the human highlight reel himself, Michel Peirira who was a pound heavy for his welterweight contest with short-notice replacement Tristan Connelly.
Pereira was given an extra hour to cut the one pound remaining but opted to make the attempt. He will forfeit 20 percent of his purse to Connolly as a result.
