Watch the ceremonial Weigh-in above at 22:00 GMT

UFC’s bad luck at weigh-ins continued on Friday as one of the fights set for UFC Atlantic City has been cancelled, while main eventer Kevin Lee missed weight.

Kevin Lee who is set to face Edson Barboza in the main event, missed the lightweight limit of 157 pounds will be able to fight, but the “Motown Phenom” will be fined 20% of his purse.

A flyweight fight between Magomed Bibulatov and Ulka Sasaki was cancelled during Friday’s official weigh-ins, as UFC doctors would deem Sasaki “medically unfit” to compete, pulling Bibulatov off the show without an opponent.

Another fighter would have weigh-in issues as Aspen Ladd would come in nearly three pounds over the bantamweight limit of 135 pounds. As of now Ladd will not weigh-in again and the fight has not been cancelled.
