Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier both tipped the scales at 155lbs ahead of tomorrow night’s lightweight title unification bout in Abu Dhabi.
Nurmagomedov was the first fighter to step on the scale and make weight although he needed a towel to do it. Poirier followed shortly after, putting an end to rumours that the Russian was struggling to get down to 155lbs.
Only one fighter missed weight Sarah Moras came in at 138lbs ahead of her bantamweight bout with Liana Jojua. She will forfeit 20% of her purse to her opponent, who came in bang on 135lbs.
