UFC 208's main event is official as Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie weighed in at under the 145-pound threshold Friday for the inaugural women's featherweight title. Since the summer of 2016, weigh-ins have been moved to a two-hour window during the morning the day before the fight, an effort to allow fighters to rehydrate safely over a longer period before the actual fight.
What is a seemingly routine exercise has become a dramatic event during fight weeks. UFC 208's weigh-ins seemed destined for a perfect record, every fighter stepping on scale making weight, but this event wasn't without drama. The penultimate fighter to step on the scale, Justin Willis, never got the opportunity to weigh-in. He took the fight on short notice and was deemed medically unfit, and his fight with Marcin Tybura was removed from the event.

The final fighter to step on the scale was Anderson Silva, who waited until late in the two-hour window to step on the scale, but weighed in at 185 pounds, right on the mark. His opponent, Derek Brunson, weighed in at 186 pounds, taking full advantage of the extra pound for non-title fights.
