Max Holloway and Arnold Allen could move one step closer to a UFC title shot on Saturday.

The top-ranked featherweights — Holloway is No. 2 in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings, Allen is tied for the No. 5 spot — successfully made weight Friday at the official weigh-ins for UFC Kansas City, which takes place Saturday at T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Mo. Holloway and Allen meet in the headlining bout.

Both fighters recorded an official weight of a 146 pounds, utilizing the one-pound allowance for non-title fights. This is Holloway’s 25th time hitting the featherweight mark, placing him in a tie with Darren Elkins for the most featherweight appearances in UFC history.

Allen seeks his 11th straight UFC victory and possibly his first championship opportunity.

Friday’s weigh-ins saw one fighter miss weight, bantamweight Joselyne Edwards. The Panamanian fighter came in 0.5 pounds over the limit and she has now missed weight in two straight fights. Edwards was 1.5 pounds over for a matchup with Ji Yeon Kim at UFC 277 last July, a bout that she stepped into as a replacement on less than three weeks’ notice.

Edwards’ bout with Lucie Pudilova (136) will proceed at a catchweight with Edwards forfeiting 20 percent of her purse as penalty.
