No one will be carrying more weight into the octagon on Saturday than heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.
Ngannou meets interim champion Ciryl Gane in a unification bout that headlines UFC 270 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., tomorrow night and he came in at 257 pounds at Friday’s official weigh-ins, 10 pounds heavier than Gane (247). This is the lightest Ngannou has been since coming in at 255.5 pounds for a fight with Junior dos Santos in June 2019.
Flyweight championship co-main event competitors Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo were also on point for their trilogy bout with both fighters weighing in under the championship limit at 124 pounds. The rivals were the first two men to weigh in Friday morning, with Figueiredo stepping to the scale right after Moreno.
