UFC 252 weigh-in results: Stipe Miocic, Daniel Cormier official for trilogy bout, Herbert Burns misses by 3.5 pounds

Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier came in well under the heavyweight limit for the conclusion of their trilogy at UFC 252, but a pair of featherweights had issues with the scale.

At Friday’s official weigh-ins, Miocic came in at 233 pounds and Cormier at 236, making them official for the UFC 252 heavyweight championship headliner that takes place at UFC APEX in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Miocic weighed in at 242.5 pounds and Cormier at 246 for their first meeting at UFC 226 in July 2018, which Cormier won by first-round KO to capture Miocic’s heavyweight title. For their rematch at UFC 241 in August 2019, Miocic weighed in at 230.5 and Cormier at 236.5. Miocic defeated Cormier by fourth-round TKO to regain the title and set up a third fight.

Co-headlining bantamweights Sean O’Malley and Marlon Vera were also on weight, with both tipping the scales at 136 pounds.

Featherweight Herbert Burns weighed in at 149.5 pounds, 3.5 pounds over the limit (including one-pound allowance) for his main card bout opposite Daniel Pineda, and featherweight TJ Brown (146.5) also missed weight for his fight with Danny Chavez. Both bouts will proceed at a catchweight with Burns and Brown forfeiting 20 percent of their purses to their respective opponents.
