TUF 28 Finale Weigh-in Results: Main Event and Finals Set, but Two Fighters Miss Weight



Another season of The Ultimate Fighter will soon end with TUF 28 Finale on Friday: Dos Anjos vs. Usman, who was due to drop in Las Vegas following Friday's weighing.

The main event featuring two welterweight classes trying to get into the picture title with former lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos made weight at 170 pounds on the official scales on Friday. His opponent, heavyweight welterweight talent Kamaru Usman, stepped on the scale at £ 170.5.

The 28th of the Ultimate Fighter featured heavyweight people and featherweight women, and their final battle was now set.

In the women's featherweight division, Macy Chiasson weighs 144.5 pounds, while Pannie Kianzad weighs 145 pounds.

Their colleagues in the men's heavyweight division made weight, too, with Justin Frazier stepping on the initial scale at 264 pounds, only two pounds of shame from the upper limit for the heaviest UFC heavyweight. Juan Espino isn't far behind, tipping on a 260 pound scale.

DEVELOPMENT> Kamaru Usman To Prove "I am the Best Admirer in the World"

Two fighters lost weight for the Friday night match. Ji Yeon Kim was the first fighter on that scale, but weighed 130.5 pounds for his flying class battle with Antonina Shevchenko, a full 4.5 pounds over the limit for heavyweight non-title battles.

Rick Glenn, who was supposed to face Kevin Aguilar in the feature fight on the FS1 part of the initial fight, weighing 2.5 pounds beyond the limit for a feather-level non-title fight, stepped on the scale at 148.5 pounds.

If their opponent agrees to accept the attack, Kim and Glenn will be asked to lose a portion of their respective battle wallets, usually in the range of 20-30 percent, which will go to their opponents.
