Khabib and Gaethje make weight on Fight Island

The UFC 254 main event is now official after Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje made the weight.

Both fighters are in the lightweight limit during the weigh-ins from Abu Dhabi on Friday.

The reigning UFC lightweight champion was the first fighter on the scale as Nurmagomedov stood behind a towel to hit the 155-pound limit.

The undefeated Russian has experienced weight cutting issues in the past, so Nurmagomedov definitely looked relieved once he successfully came in at 155 pounds for the title fight.

Nurmagomedov looks to defend his title for the third consecutive time when he faces Gaethje, which would tie the all-time record in the UFC lightweight division.

Justin is in top form, too. The American former wrestler fought his way through the whole division, defeating mighty Tony Ferguson earlier in 2020.
