UFC 244 Weigh In results
One of the most anticipated fight cards of the year is finally upon us — as Madison Square Garden hosts UFC 244 on Saturday. In the main event of the evening, the newly founded “BMF” title is on the line as Jorge Masvidal squares off against Nate Diaz at Welterweight . “Gamebred” tipped the scales at 169.6, while Diaz weighed in at 170.4 ahead of one of the most highly anticipated fights of the year. In the co-main event, a middlweight debut awaits Darren Till as he goes up against former title challenger, Kelvin Gastelum. Despite travel issues, “The Gorilla” hit the scales and weighed in at 186. On the other hand, Gastelum weighed in with 1 minute to spare and sparked controversy as he appeared to lean on his trainer to help him make the 186lbs limit. He eventually tipped the scales at 184lbs on Friday morning.
