UFC Vegas 54 takes place live tomorrow night, but first, we have the results from today’s weigh-ins!
The UFC Vegas 54 main event will feature former light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz facing surging contender Aleksandar Rakić. A title shot could be looming for either competitor with a victory in the headliner. You can view the UFC’s full main-event preview here.
In the co-main event, two other lightweights will scrap it up when Ryan Spann meets Ion Cutelaba. Spann currently occupies the #13 spot in the rankings, with Cutelaba having the opportunity the LHW ranks with a big win tomorrow.
There will be another fight with potential title implications when former challenger and #1-ranked women’s flyweight Katlyn Chookagian takes on Amanda Ribas on the main card. While it may be too soon for Chookagian to get another title shot after falling to Valentina Shevchenko in a lopsided fashion in 2020, Ribas would be a fresh contender if Shevchenko remains champion after UFC 275. And beating the #1 contender could certainly fast-track Ribas toward “The Bullet.”
