Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens looked lean, mean and ready to rumble after weighing in on Friday ahead of their main event bout just over 24-hours away.
Stephens looked like a monster weighing in at 145 pounds and will have a size advantage over Swanson by Saturday night after the two fighters hit the scale and stared down in San Antonio.
Unfortunately, former Ultimate Fighter season 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum’s third trip as a welterweight didn’t go as well as he weighed in at 173 pounds — two pounds over the 171 pound limit for a welterweight bout. This is the second straight fight where Gastelum has struggled to make weight as he’s moved on from working with noted nutritionist Mike Dolce after believing his services were too ‘expensive’.

Gastelum has two hours to make the additional cut or he will be fined by the Texas Commission for not making weight.
