UFC 267 Weigh-in Results: Title Fights Official; Ismagulov 7.5 Pounds Over

By Tyler Treese Oct 29, 2021

Two Ultimate Fighting Championship title fights are cleared for UFC 267.

The main event will see Jan Blachowicz looking to defend his light heavyweight gold against Glover Teixeira. Meanwhile, Petr Yan and Cory Sandhagen will fight for the interim bantamweight title while Aljamain Sterling recovers from surgery. While all four fighters vying for championships made weight, Damir Ismagulov unprofessionally came in 7.5 pounds over the lightweight limit for his bout against Magomed Mustafaev and Khamzat Chimaev initially weighed-in .5 pounds over the welterweight limit but hit 171 pounds on his second attempt.

Blachowicz (28-8) is currently on a five-fight win streak and is coming off a successful defense of his 205-pound title against middleweight king Israel Adesanya. The 38-year-old has shown plenty of Polish power by knocking out Dominick Reyes, Corey Anderson and Luke Rockhold in recent bouts. The champion officially weighed 205 pounds on the dot.

Meanwhile, this title shot is a long time coming for Teixeira (32-7). The 42-year-old Brazilian is also riding a five-fight win streak. The veteran fighter most recently finished off Anthony Smith with punches and submitted Thiago Santos with a rear-naked choke. The challenger also stepped on the scale at 205 pounds.

The co-main event will see Yan (15-2) look to regain bantamweight gold against Sandhagen (14-3). Yan is coming off a disqualification defeat against Sterling after landing an illegal knee and was previously undefeated inside the UFC. Conversely, "Sandman" had put together wins over Frankie Edgar and Marlon Moraes before losing a contested split decision against T.J. Dillashaw. Both fighters weighed in at 135 pounds exactly.

UFC 267 will stream live on ESPN+. The prelims begin at 10:30 a.m. ET/7:30 a.m. ET while the main card begins at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT.
