UFC Vegas 23 Weighing Results & Video: Vettori vs. Holland Set; Norma Dumont pulled because of lack of weight

The UFC Vegas 23 weigh-in results show the main event fighters easily hit the mark on Saturday. The UFC Vegas 23 Weights took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Friday. UFC Vegas 23 Weigh-In Results At the main UFC Vegas on 23 (aka UFC on ABC 2) event, fast-rising middleweight contender Marvin Vettori faces late-replaced Kevin Holland. Vettori at number 6 was originally intended for number 6. 5th Darren Till, but Till had to retire because of a broken collarbone. Vettori was eager to take the fight and was first on the scales, weighing 186 pounds. This was the upper limit for an untitled middleweight bout. Holland followed a short time later, stepping on the scales at just 183.5 pounds. Vettori has won four fights. His last loss was against current champions Israel Adesanya. Vettori lost that fight by a split decision long before Adesanya won the UFC middleweight title. Holland had a wild winning streak of five fights before their last fight, which took place just three weeks ago. He lost a unanimous decision to Derek Brunson in a fight in which he was heavily criticized for joking and talking casually to cage-side observers throughout the fight. Two UFC Vegas 23 fighters missed the weight Norma Dumont was the only fighter to miss the weight for UFC Vegas 23. She hit the scales with half an hour left in the two-hour weigh-in window and weighed 139.5 pounds for her bantamweight fight against UFC newcomer Erin Blanchfield. While Blanchfield made light weight at 135 pounds, Dumont was 3.5 pounds over the limit for an untitled bantamweight bout. Ignacio Bahamondes was the last fighter on the scales as he had run out of time to gain weight. On his second try, he hit the scales at 156.75 pounds, 0.75 pounds over the limit for his untitled fight with John Makdessi, who had previously gained weight. If Dumont and Bahamondes are medically cleared for battle and an agreement can be reached with their opponents, their bouts could potentially continue with the likelihood of each of them being fined 20 to 30 percent of their battle wallets for lack of weight. The fine would go to their respective opponents. UPDATE: Norma Dumont retired from the UFC Vegas 23 fight due to lack of weight. Shortly after the weigh-in, it was announced that Dumont would not be allowed to fight on Saturday. MMAWeekly.com confirmed to Blanchfield management, KO Reps, that the Nevada State Athletic Commission would not allow Dumont to fight after her second straight failure of 3.5 pounds on the scales. Blanchfield’s camp was willing to accept the fight with a 30 percent fine, according to KO Reps, but the commission would not allow it.
