UFC Vegas 24 is being headlined by former “Ultimate Fighter” coaches Robert Whittaker and Kelvin Gastelum in a middleweight fight with title contender implications. The UFC Vegas 24 weigh-ins would result in two fighters missing weight, with only one fight being called off. After the weigh-in, UFC Vegas 24 is a go with eleven fights being approved by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Zarah Fairn missed weight by 8 pounds (147) for her Catchweight (139) bout against Josiane Nunes. The Nevada State Athletic Commission opted to pull Fairn vs. Nunes from the card due to the significant weight difference. It should be noted that this fight was originally scheduled to take place at 135 pounds.

Tracy Cortez missed weight by 1.5 pounds for her bout against Justine Kish. The Nevada State Athletic Commission has decided to allow the fight to continue with a 20% purse fine for Cortez.

Things also got heated between Jeremy Stephens and Drakkar Klose! As Stephens would violently shove Klose back during the faceoffs, adding some heat to their fight on weigh-ins day!
