Julija Stoliarenko fainted twice on the scale during the UFC on ESPN 21 weigh-ins and was immediately hospitalized.
Khabib Nurmagomedov went through a rough weight cut session that led him to get hospitalized on the morning of the weigh-ins for his fight against Tony Ferguson at UFC 209.
A scheduled UFC middleweight bout between Trevin Giles and Kevin Holland was canceled when Giles fainted backstage and was hospitalized right before the fighters were set to walk out because of a harsh weight cut.
Renan Barao passed out while trying to cut the weight, hitting his head on a bathtub and being forced out of the UFC 177 rematch against T.J. Dillashaw.
After successfully weighing in, Mizuto Hirota began to sway backward, looking like he was going to pass out. Luckily he was assisted off the platform, ultimately making it to fight night.
