UFC Vegas 25 weigh-in results: Dominick Reyes, Jiri Prochazka on point, one bout cancelled after fighter misses weight by over four pounds

New, comments

UFC Vegas 25 headliners Dominick Reyes and Jiri Prochazka took care of business at Friday’s official weigh-ins, but the same couldn’t be said for everyone.

Weighing in for Saturday’s light heavyweight main event, Reyes came in at 205.5 pounds and Prochazka at 204 pounds to make their bout official. All 12 fighters on the UFC Vegas 25 main card successfully made weight, including co-main event featherweights Cub Swanson (145.5) and Giga Chikadze (146).

Two fighters missed weight at the official weigh-ins, featherweight Gabriel Benitez and flyweight Luana Carolina. “Moggly” was dropping back down to the 145-pound division after a two-fight stint at lightweight, but weighed in at 150.5 pounds, which is 4.5 pounds over the limit (including a one-pound allowance for non-title bouts).

The miss was so egregious that opponent Jonathan Pearce declined to accept the bout after it was originally stated that it would proceed at a catchweight with Benitez forfeiting 30 percent of his purse to Pearce. Their preliminary bout has been cancelled.

Carolina came in at 128.5 pounds, 2.5 pounds over the flyweight limit with the allowance. Her opponent Poliana Botelho successfully made weight at 125.5 pounds. Their bout will proceed at a catchweight, with Carolina forfeiting 20 percent of her purse to Botelho.
