The UFC Vegas 61 headliners both hit the non-title mark at 115.5 pounds at Friday’s official weigh-ins for the UFC APEX event in Las Vegas. This is Dern’s second main event opportunity while Yan closes out a UFC event for the first time.
All 24 fighters competing on Saturday’s card successfully made weight, but prior to the start of weigh-ins it was announced that a preliminary strawweight bout between Jessica Penne and Tabatha Ricci has been cancelled due to Penne being forced to withdraw due to a non-weight cut-related illness.
Co-main event welterweight competitors Randy Brown and Francisco Trinaldo successfully made weight at 170.5 and 170 pounds, respectively. Brown seeks his fourth straight win while the 44-year-old Trinaldo makes his 26th UFC appearance and fourth in the welterweight division.
