The official weigh-ins for UFC Vegas 31 took place on Friday in Las Vegas, Nevada, and all 22 fighters scheduled to compete have made weight.

In the main event of the evening, No. 9 ranked UFC lightweight contender Islam Makhachev puts his seven-fight win streak on the line when he takes on the No. 14 ranked Thiago Moises. Makhachev and Moises both successfully made weight on Friday, with each man coming in at 155.5lbs and 156lbs, respectively. This will be the first five-round fight for each fighter during their UFC careers and the winner should get a top-10 opponent. Keep in mind the original main event for UFC Vegas 31 was supposed to be Max Holloway vs. Yair Rodriguez, but that fight fell off and Makhachev and Moises got bumped up.

The co-main event sees former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate return when she takes on Marion Reneau, who has announced she will retire after this fight. Tate stepped onto the scale at 135lbs with Reneau coming in at 136lbs for the fight. Tate has promised a return to form in her comeback while Reneau is promising a win in his final fight, so it should be intriguing to see how this matchup plays out.
