UFC 260 weighing results: Heavyweight title fight set, two undercard fighters miss the mark

The fighters stepped on the scales on Friday and the UFC 260 weighing results are in. Though the fight card took a heavy blow a week ago when the original co-main event fell apart, the heavyweight rematch between champion Stipe Miocic and No. 1 contender Francis Ngannou got the go-ahead. Miocic and Ngannou made light weight for the heavyweight slope. Miocic stepped on the scales at 234 pounds while Ngannou weighed 263 pounds. The UFC 260 fight card should contain one more title fight. The featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski was supposed to defend against Brian Ortega. The fight was canceled about a week later when Volkanovski tested positive for COVID-19. It is currently planned to postpone the fight to a later date. Two undercard fighters initially missed the mark for their UFC 260 preliminary rounds. Fabio Cherant weighed 206.5 pounds for his UFC 260 light heavyweight round bout on ESPN. He is a late replacement for William Knight, who was removed from battle with Alonzo Menifield because of COVID-19 safety protocols. Cherant was given an extra hour to gain weight pending medical clearance. Jared Gooden also missed 0.5 pounds when he weighed 171.5 pounds for welterweight propensity with Abubakar Nurmagomedov, cousin of former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
