Heading into what he calls his “redemption fight,” Brok Weaver has missed weight for UFC on ESPN 9.
Roberts was within the limit at 156 pounds.
Per the UFC, the fight will go on as scheduled with Weaver forfeiting 20 percent of his purse to Roberts.
Weaver made his long-awaited UFC debut at February’s UFC Rio Rancho event and took an illegal knee late from Rodrigo Vargas late in the first round. “Chata Tuska” picked up his first UFC win by result of disqualification and will look to steal the show in his sophomore appearance.
After picking up back-to-back wins over Darrell Horcher and Thomas Gifford to begin his promotional tenure, Roberts suffered the first lost of his career via unanimous decision to Vinc Pichel in June 2019. The 26-year-old returned to the win column at UFC Moscow when he defeated Alexander Yakovlev in November.
