Former UFC Interim Lightweight Champion Tony Ferguson and former WSOF Lightweight Champion Justin Gaethje were supposed to meet tomorrow night in the main event of UFC 249, but the event was canceled after UFC President Dana White was asked to stand down by both Disney and ESPN.
However, while the card was canceled, it didn’t stop Ferguson from making the championship weight limit of 155 pounds.
Ferguson posted the following video of him making weight earlier today on Twitter, coming in at 155 pounds:

Luckily for both Ferguson and Gaethje, both will still meet on May 9 in the main event of the rescheduled UFC 249 card, which still doesn’t have a location at this time.
