The UFC Moscow official weigh-ins —- no ceremonial weigh-ins this week — are complete. Headliner Mark Hunt weighed in at 265 lbs, thirty pounds more than his Russian opponent, Alexei Oleinik. As for the co-main event, Jan Blachowicz and Nikita Krylov both weighed at the championship limit of 205 lbs… this is obviously not a championship fight, but Krylov is in it, so it might as well be.
We did have two fighters miss weight on the prelims. Bantamweight Jin Soo Son, a late notice replacement to fight Petr Yan, weighed 137 lbs and will forfeit 20% of his purse to Yan. Mairbek Taisumov is supposed to be a lightweight, but there ain’t anything light about “161 lbs,” so he forfeits a whopping 40% of his purse to Des Green.
