World News – UA – UFC on ESPN 38 weigh-in results: close shave for Brian Ortega as all 22 fighters gain weight


ABU DHABI – MMA Junkie was at the scene and reporting live as fighters step up to the scales at the official UFC on ESPN 38 weigh- ins at Yas Island

Both main event fighters gained weight for their untitled featherweight match, with Brian Ortega (14-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) and Chan Sung Jung (16-5 MMA, 6-2 UFC) hitting the 146 -pound with no title limit, although the first one arrived looking distinctly different, having shaved his head before climbing the ladder

Both fighters from the main co-event also hit their weight with no problem, as flyweight contenders Jessica Andrade (20-8 MMA, 11-6 UFC) and Katlyn Chookagian (14-3 MMA, 7- 3 UFC) both hit 126 pounds , while the rising outlook for light heavyweights Modestas Bukauskas (11-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Jimmy Crute (11-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) both seemed comfortable on the scales then they both weighed 206 pounds

Former KSW two-division champion Mateusz Gamrot (17-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) also negotiated his first UFC weigh-in without a hitch, and he roared his approval when the commissioner confirmed he weighed 156 pounds and ready for his preliminary card fight with Guram Kutateladze (11-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who tipped the scales at the same weight
