Julija Stoliarenko suffered a major scare at the official weigh-ins for UFC Vegas 22.

The bantamweight stepped to the scale Friday morning and caused alarm when she attempted to weigh in and fainted twice before being physically escorted off of the stage.

In the video above, Stoliarenko can be seen stumbling and falling off of the scale before UFC officials move to assist her.

Stoliarenko made weight at 135.5 pounds for her main card bout Saturday with Julia Avila, but the scheduling was immediately put in question following Stoliarenko’s fainting spell. Avila successfully made weight earlier at 135.5 pounds. This was to be the first bout of 2021 for both fighters.

UPDATE: The Avila-Stoliarenko fight has officially been cancelled.

This is the second straight time that Avila has seen a bout altered. She was scheduled to fight Nicco Montano in October, but instead fought Sijara Eubanks a month earlier after Montano withdrew. She lost to Eubanks by unanimous decision.
