Fans Think Khabib Nurmagomedov Didn't Make Weight Ahead Of UFC 254 Main Event With Justin Gaethje

Khabib Nurmagomedov weighed in at 155lbs for his UFC 254 main event against Justin Gaethje but plenty of fans are of the opinion he didn't actually make the weight.

Having been the first to weigh, the UFC lightweight champion required a towel and the assistance of two employees as he stripped down before stepping on the scales.

When his weight was announced, the Dagestani fighter let out a huge sigh of relief after another gruelling weight-cut. He held his hands to his face and even did a praying gesture.

But in addition to the worry over the condition Khabib is in, plenty of fight reckons reckon he actually missed weight - with some pointing out how the bar on the scale hadn't completely moved when the quick weight announcement was made.

The eagerly anticipated bout is still going ahead as planned at Flash Forum in Abu Dhabi tomorrow, with three-time Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler on standby if either fighter has to pull out.
