UFC on ESPN 55 weigh-in results: Two fighters heavy – including 2.5-pound miss

LAS VEGAS – MMA Junkie was on scene and reporting live from Friday’s official UFC on ESPN 55 (ESPN/ESPN2/ESPN+) fighter weigh-ins at the UFC Apex.

Among those weighing in were Matheus Nicolau (19-4-1 MMA, 7-2 UFC) and former title challenger Alex Perez (24-8 MMA, 6-4 UFC), who meet in the flyweight main event, and Bogdan Guskov (15-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Ryan Spann (21-9 MMA, 7-4 UFC), who fight in the light heavyweight co-feature. All four of those names hit their contracted marks.

The same couldn’t be said for a pair of undercards fighters, though. David Onama was 2.5 pounds over the featherweight limit for his main card matchup with Jonathan Pearce, while octagon newcomer James Llontop barely missed the lightweight limit for his octagon debut vs. Chris Padilla.
