UFC 290 weigh-in results: Two title fights set, Jalin Turner misses weight

Alexander Volkanovski and Brandon Moreno are ready for their title defenses, but the UFC 290 main card weigh-ins didn’t go off without a hitch.

Two title fights top Saturday’s pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and as of now they will proceed as scheduled, with Volkanovski weighing in at 144.5 pounds for his featherweight championship unification bout with interim titleholder Yair Rodriguez (145).

The co-main event is also set, with Moreno coming in at 125 pounds and challenger Alexandre Pantoja hitting the same weight. Brandon Royval also successfully weighed in at 125 pounds to serve as a potential backup.

Watch highlights from the official weigh-ins for Saturday’s title fights below.

Of the 28 fighters weighing in Friday morning, only one fighter missed, lightweight contender Jalin Turner. He was the last fighter to show up for the weigh-ins and when he stepped to the scale, he came in at 158 pounds, two pounds over the limit for his bout against Dan Hooker (155.5).

Turner did not attempt a second weigh-in. His bout with Hooker will proceed as a catchweight, with Turner forfeiting 20 percent of his purse as penalty.

Also of note at the official weigh-ins, former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler made his final trip to the scale and successfully weighed in at 170.5 pounds. Lawler, 41, competes for the last time, marking the end of an illustrious career that dates back to 2021.
