Two fighters miss weight in New York

MMA Junkie reports the official UFC 295 fighter weigh-ins, which took place at the UFC host hotel in New York ahead of the ceremonial weigh-ins for the fans at The Theater at MSG in New York. The event will take place at Madison Square Garden and features a main card on pay-per-view with prelims on ESPNews and early prelims on ESPN+.

Making weight for the weigh-ins were former light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka and ex-middleweight champ Alex Pereira, who are set to fight for the vacant 205-pound title. Pereira is looking to become the UFC’s newest two-division titleholder. In the co-feature, interim heavyweight title will be on the line between Sergei Pavlovich and Tom Aspinall.

While the four title fight combatants made weight, two undercard fighters missed the mark. Jamall Emmers came in one pound over the featherweight limit, and Roosevelt Roberts exceeded the lightweight limit by two pounds.

According to the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) protocols, only title fight combatants receive an additional hour to hit their marks. As a result, Emmers and Roberts were one-and-done on the scale.

The status of the fights and potential fines are currently unknown. MMA Junkie will update the story when confirmation is received.
