The official weigh-ins for UFC Vegas 43 took place on Friday in Las Vegas, and 24 of the 24 fighters scheduled to compete have made weight.
In the main event of UFC Vegas 43, both women’s bantamweight headliners Miesha Tate and Ketlen Vieira successfully made weight. Vieira stepped onto the scale at the maximum non-title limit of 136lbs for a women’s bantamweight contest, while Tate was just a smidge below her at 135.5lbs. And with that, the main event of Saturday’s UFC card is official.
In the co-main event, we have Michael Chiesa taking on Sean Brady in a welterweight contest. Both men weighed in at identical weighs of 170.5lbs for this important matchup in the UFC welterweight division, which features two of the top-15 fighters in the weight class.
Other than that, there was not a lot else to report on from the UFC Vegas 43 weigh-ins. Overall it was one of the easier weigh-ins in quite some time as all of the fighters were quick to get onto the scale and make the weight. We can only hope that going forward, more weigh-ins will run this smoothly as there were no issues to speak of whatsoever.
