Saturday’s main event is ready to roll.
Light heavyweight headliners Johnny Walker and Jamahal Hill both successfully made weight at Friday’s official UFC Vegas 48 weigh-ins, with Walker hitting 206 pounds on the scale and Hill weighing 205 pounds on the dot. This is the second straight main event for Walker and the first for Hill after they were promoted to the main event following the postponement of a lightweight headliner between Rafael dos Anjos and Rafael Fiziev.
Gabriel Benitez was Friday’s lone weight miss, coming in two pounds over the featherweight limit for his bout with David Onama. It is the second time that the veteran has missed weight in his UFC career.
Last May, Benitez missed the featherweight limit by 4.5 pounds for UFC Vegas 25, which resulted in opponent Jonathan Pearce declining the bout.
Per the UFC, Benitez vs. Onama will proceed at a catchweight with Benitez forfeiting 30 percent of his purse as penalty.
Aside from Benitez, the other 23 fighters competing on Saturday’s card successfully made weight.
