Is UFC Lying About Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Weight For Justin Gaethje Fight?

Khabib Nurmagomedov will face off against Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 on Saturday afternoon to defend his lightweight championship. It is expected to be a fun bout between two contrasting styles that will settle once and for all who the division’s best fighter is.

Heading into the match-up, both men had to weigh in on Friday morning. Gaethje did the deed with no issues or concerns. Nurmagomedov, however, seemed to have some difficulties.

Unlike his counterpart, Nurmagomedov appeared to go extremely quickly with no one paying serious attention to whether his weight was actually on the mark. The video speaks for itself.

The person conducting the weigh-in could very clearly be seen not paying attention to what was actually on Nurmagomedov’s scale.

Naturally, fans had some notes and observations.

Regardless of whether there was any foul play or not, the fight is proceeding as planned – so none of this chatter really matters.

Come Saturday, either Nurmagomedov or Gaethje will emerge from their showdown as champion. Which one will it be? Time will tell.
