The 12 fighters set to compete for championship gold and $1 million all successfully made weight at the official weigh-ins for the 2022 PFL World Championships in New York, though we had to wait for final confirmation of the full six-bout championship lineup.
The main event bout between Kayla Harrison and Larissa Pacheco will crown the 2022 women’s lightweight champion, and the two athletes arrived at identical weights, both tipping the scale at 154.2 pounds for their matchup.
The featherweight bout between England’s Brendan Loughnane and America’s Bubba Jenkins has generated plenty of interest in the lead-up to fight night, and both made weight with no fuss, with Loughnane coming in at 144.8 and Jenkins bang on the 145-pound limit.
The rest of the card all weighed in within their contracted boundaries, but there was a nervous wait for the welterweight championship bout to be confirmed as Dilano Taylor left it as late as possible before stepping onto the scale.
Thankfully, any fears of the contender missing weight were erased when he registered a comfortable 169.4 pounds to make his welterweight championship bout with Sadibou Sy (169.6) official.
Check out the full list of official weights below.
