One half of the UFC Atlantic City main event came in overweight for the official weigh-ins.

Kevin Lee, who faces Edson Barboza in a five-round lightweight clash at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., Saturday night, weighed in at 157 pounds on Friday morning with only three minutes to spare in the two-hour window.

The fight will proceed as a catchweight, and Lee will forfeit 20 percent of his purse.

The other 24 fighters stepped on the scale in the first 40 minutes, and only one of the athletes missed weight. Aspen Ladd, who meets Leslie Smith in the Fight Pass prelims, hit 137.8 pounds for her bantamweight bout.

Another preliminary bout was scrapped moments before the official weigh-ins, but not related to weight cutting. Magomed Bibulatov was forced out of his fight with Ulka Sasaki due to a back injury.
