UFC On FOX 28 Weigh-In Results: Prelim Fighter Misses Weight (Updated)

The official morning weigh-ins for this weekend’s UFC On FOX 28 event have come-and-gone without too much controversy.

All 24 fighters scheduled for Saturday’s card at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida tipped the scales on Friday morning, and all but one were able to land within the one-pound allowance of their respective weight divisions.

Headlined by an exciting featherweight bout between Jeremy Stephens and Josh Emmett, UFC On FOX 28 features a four-fight main card that kicks off on “big FOX” at 8pm EST. The preliminary card will also air on FOX at 6pm EST., with Renan Barao battling Brian Kelleher in the featured bout of the four-fight card. On the early prelims, which air on UFC Fight Pass starting at 4:15pm EST., Sam Alvey and Marcin Prachnio will close out another four-fight preliminary lineup.
