Usman, the first fighter to weigh-in, hit the 170-pound welterweight limit on the button, as did Edwards who came to the scale about a half-hour later. The co-main event fighters, Rafael Fiziev and Justin Gaethje, also made weight at 156 pounds.
However, flyweight fighter Malcolm Gordon was the lone fighter to miss weight, coming in at 129.5 pounds for his bout against Jake Hadley. Gordon decided to stop his weight cut rather than continue to try to hit the mark and will face a fine.
The ceremonial weigh-ins for fans will take place at The O2 in London at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday, with the main card airing on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPNews and early prelims on ESPN+. The Edwards vs. Usman trilogy fight promises to be a thrilling main event that fans won’t want to miss.
