UFC 262 Weigh-ins: The rest of the card

Chiefly, the fighters came from across various points on the card in quick succession, and all fighters but one made weight successfully.

The curtain was brought out on a few different occasions early into the show. Andrea Lee, Katlyn Chookagian, Priscila Cachoeira were amongst the fighters who required the ‘curtain of shame’ as some fans called it.

Rogerio Bontorin was the last fighter to step on the scale and he weighed in at 137-pounds. Heading into the weigh-in show, it was revealed that Rogerio Bontorin was having trouble making the bantamweight limit. It’s clear that his troubles persisted despite being the last one on the scale.

Bontorin took the fight on 3 weeks’ notice; however, he’s a flyweight and was expected to make the limit. Despite now fighting at a higher weight class than he usually does, Rogerio Bontorin came in over the mark.

His miss was just over the 1-pound allowance rate, and his fight against Matt Schnell was never really in jeopardy.
