Editor's note: The article has been updated at 3 p.m. ET on Nov. 11 to reflect that an additional fighter had missed weight.
Bellator 271's headline bout for the Bellator MMA women's featherweight championship is now official.
Both women had no issue making weight with Justino (24-2) weighing 145 pounds exactly, and Kavanagh (7-4) coming in at the same weight. However, a prelim bout between Shane O'Shea vs. Jordan Newman has been canceled after O'Shea didn't weigh in for an undisclosed reason. Additionally, Robert Turnquest (177.8) came in 6.8 pounds above the welterweight limit, and his matchup with Roman Faraldo may be in jeopardy.
Justino comes into the bout undefeated inside the Bellator cage. "Cyborg" most recently defeated Leslie Smith in a dominant performance, and before that, she submitted Arlene Blencowe after finishing Julia Budd to win the belt. Meanwhile, Kavanagh has strung together two wins against Katharina Lehner and Olga Rubin after going 1-4 in her previous five fights.
Bellator 271's main card will air live on Showtime starting at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. The prelims begin three hours prior on YouTube at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
