UFC 298 Volkanovski Vs. Topuria Weigh-In Results

This Saturday, live from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski (26-3) is prepared to square off against the undefeated Ilia Topuria (14-0) at UFC 298.

Preceding the headlining bout, former middleweight titleholder Robert Whittaker (24-7) will look to bounce back from his loss to Dricus Du Plessis back in July, when he comes face to face with Paulo “The Eraser” Costa (14-2)

UFC 298 is set for this Saturday, February 17th, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The prelims will get started at 6:30 p.m. ET / 3:30 p.m. PT on UFC Fight Pass and ESPN+.

Following, at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT the five fight main card will go live on Pay-Per-View.

Earlier this Friday, all 24 fighters competing on the card stepped to the scale and officially made weight, including the main event headliners, who both came in at 144.5-pounds.

Despite everything going smooth on the scales, Justin Tafa was removed from the card due to an injury shortly before the scheduled weigh-in. Luckily, Tafa’s brother Junior was able to step in on short notice to fill the void and take on Marcos Rogerio de Lima.

Given Paulo Costa’s difficulty with weight cutting in the past, many had expected that he could once again run into trouble. But, he was clearly focused on his preparations for this bout with Whittaker, as he came in right at the middleweight limit of 185.5-pounds.
