The premiere mixed marital arts organization in the world rolls on, with this weekend’s UFC Vegas 22: Derek Brunson vs Kevin Holland. This is the results of Friday’s early weigh-ins.

This weekend’s UFC event sees the promotion return to the new mecca of fighting, Las Vegas, Nevada. This time around, the main event sees middleweight mainstay Derek Brunson look to break the five-fight winning streak of hot rising prospect Kevin Holland.

In the co-main event, Gregor Gillespie returns from more than a year away, looking to rebound from his first pro loss by taking on rising Oceanic star Brad Riddell. All the way through, this is a card littered with some hidden gems, and up and coming potential contenders.

UFC Vegas 22 Weigh-In Results

Before competing on Saturday night, the fighters took to the scales on Friday to make weight. 24 fighters looked to hit their marks on the scale, and one of these fighters missed the mark.

Jesse Strader came in 1.5lb over the bantamweight limit for his bout with Montel Jackson. He is not going to try cutting the additional weight, likely forfeiting 20% of his purse.

Additionally, Julija Stoliarenko attempted to make weight for her bout with Julia Avila. However upon stepping on the scales, she lost balance and appeared to pass out. While she did make weight, she did collapse again, before being taken out on a stretcher. The UFC has since announced that this bout was canceled.
