Official for tomorrow night’s headliner, heavyweight contenders, Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis both successfully made weight below the 265-pound limit. 

Originally scheduled to field a fifteen fight card, featuring a whopping nine preliminary bouts — UFC Vegas 19 has been gutted to fourteen bouts, following a rather notable weight-cut mishap from featherweight, Rafael Alves. 

Scheduled to matchup with Pat Sabatini in a 145-pound pairing, the Brazilian tipped the scales at 157.5-pounds for the matchup, a whole eleven and a half pounds beyond the featherweight limit.
