UFC 267 weigh-in results: Khamzat Chimaev makes weight on third attempt, one fight scratched

By Adam D Martin - October 29, 2021

The official weigh-ins for UFC 267 took place on Friday in Abu Dhabi, and 29 of the 30 fighters scheduled to compete have made weight.

UFC 267, Jan Blachowicz, Glover Teixeira.

In the main event, headliners Jan Blachowicz and Glover Teixeira are official for their UFC light heavyweight title fight after both men weighed in at 205lbs on the dot. As for the co-main event, Petr Yan and Cory Sandhagen both weighed in successfully for their interim bantamweight title bout. Yan was 135lbs while Sandhagen was 135lbs. And with that, both of the title fights scheduled to take place at Saturday’s UFC 267 card are now official.

However, while the title fights are safe, there were some scares at the weigh-ins. Welterweight Khamzat Chimaev initially missed weight, coming in at 171.5lbs. But after taking an hour to cut the additional weight, he weighed in two more times and finally made it to 171lbs on the dot after a scale malfunction showed him at 166lbs just seconds before.

Sadly, one fight at UFC 267 was scratched. Lightweight Damir Ismagulov came in heavy at 163.5lbs for his lightweight bout with Magomed Mustafaev, and the fight was canceled.
