 Tony Kelley missed the mark for his upcoming bout at UFC on ESPN 37.

This Saturday, Kelley was originally set to take on Adrian Yanez this Saturday at bantamweight. However, he did not make the weight limit of 135 lbs and will be giving up a percentage of his purse. Ahead of the fight, Kelley had come under fire for the inflammatory comments he made while cornering Andrea Lee.

Now, Kelley has come in over the weight limit.

Kelley came in over two and one-half pounds over the division limit at 137.5 lbs. The final bout on the preliminary card will now proceed as a catchweight contest with Kelley being fined a part of his earnings. Yanez came in at 135.5 lbs, making the weight under the extra pound allowance for non-title fights.

Calvin Kattar will face Josh Emmett in the main event of the night. The headliners took to the scale early during the two-hour window with Kattar being the first fighter to step on the scale. He weighed in at 146 lbs. Emmett also made weight coming in at 145.5 lbs about 20 minutes after Kattar to solidify the headlining featherweight fight.

Another major match on the card is the contest between grizzled veterans, Donald Cerrone and Joe Lauzon. Their lightweight bout will serve as the co-main event and is expected to be the final fight for one of them if not both.

The pair were initially scheduled for a fight in early May but got pushed back after Cerrone was forced to withdraw due to food poisoning on fight day. This time around, the two are set to finally step across the cage from each other. Cerrone came in at 155 lbs while Lauzon weighed in at 154.75 lbs.

UFC on ESPN 37 will take place this June 18 at Moody Center, Austin, TX.
