All the fights scheduled for Saturday night’s UFC London are official, though not without a few last minute adjustments.
England’s Ian Entwistle tipped the scales at 139-pounds for his bantamweight clash with Brett Johns at Friday morning’s early weigh-ins in The O2 in London, however the Welshman has accepted the bout and it will now be contested at catchweight. There was more drama for Brad Pickett, too. After the UFC scrambled to find a replacement for his originally scheduled opponent Henry Briones, Marlon Vera — Pickett’s final foe in his mixed martial arts career — notified Pickett’s team overnight that he would be unable to make the 135-pound weigh limit and the pair will now meet at a 140-pound catchweight.
Elsewhere, main eventers Corey Anderson and Jimi Manuwa as well as Gunnar Nelson and his opponent Alan Jouban were among the rest of the card’s athletes who made weight with little difficulty.
