UFC Weigh In Results: Holloway Vs Allen Main Event Official, One Fighter Misses
UFC weigh in took place today (April 14th, 2023) in Kansas City, Missouri. It kicked off at 9 PM CET (10 PM ET). The UFC on ESPN 44 weigh in was pretty interesting to watch, but unfortunately, Joselyne Edwards didn't hit the scale.
The main event is official, as both Arnold Allen and Max Holloway were on point. The former UFC 145-pound division Holloway was the first to step on the scale. Holloway has always been a very responsible Octagon warrior.

Tanner Boser’s first trip to 205 was very successful, so his main card fight against the dangerous Moldovan grappler Ion Cutelaba will proceed. Boser credited deer meat for an easy cut to light heavyweight, but he looked skinny on the scale. The Canadian hard-hitting hillbilly weighed only 203 pounds, which means Cutelaba might have an advantage in the clinch. But we’re about to see, Boser’s 205-pound debut draws a lot of attention.
Clay Guida weighed 154.5 pounds in his 35th Octagon appearance. Clay is 40+ years old, but he’s still in great shape. His bout against Rafa Garcia could be one of the most entertaining fights on the card.
