Good news for UFC 222, as everybody competing on Saturday’s card has made weight. Headliners Cris Cyborg and Yana Kunitskaya were among those who weighed in quite early, and both women were below the featherweight championship limit of 145 lbs.
The only scares from the weigh-ins involved Ketlen Vieira and Mackenzie Dern. Vieira initially missed weight, coming in at 136.25 lbs for her bout vs. Cat Zingano, but made it down to 136 on her second attempt. Dern weighed 116 lbs for her strawweight fight vs. Ashley Yoder, and no towel was required, but the concern was that she was the last to weigh-in, with an overwhelming majority of the fighters stepping onto the scale within the first 30 minutes of the two-hour window.
