UFC 288 Weigh-In Results: Sterling And Cejudo Make Weight

UFC 288 takes place on May 6th, 2023, with much on the line, as the fighters weighed in before their bouts.

In the main event, Aljamain Sterling, the current UFC bantamweight champion, and Henry Cejudo, the former two-division champion, face off in the bantamweight division.

Cejudo will be looking to make a successful comeback following his retirement in 2020 after beating Dominick Cruz at UFC 249 in the hope that he can eventually become a three-weight-world champion.

But before the fight takes place, both fighters were required to weigh in at the required limit of 135 lbs.

Both Sterling and Cejudo made weight, while two bouts were clouded by weigh-in problems, as the results were outlined below.
