UFC Fight Night 211 weigh-in results: Perfect scale session in Vegas for Dern-Xiaonan main event

LAS VEGAS – MMA Junkie was on scene and reporting live from Friday’s official UFC Fight Night 211 fighter weigh-ins, where all 24 fighters on the card hit their marks.

In the main event, Mackenzie Dern (12-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) takes on Yan Xiaonan (15-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) in a women’s strawweight contenders bout. Xiaonan was the first fighter to the scale in the two-hour official window and was 115.5 pounds. Dern hit the same number about 35 minutes later.

Just prior to the start of the weigh-ins, the women’s strawweight bout between Jessica Penne (14-6 MMA, 3-4 UFC) and Tabatha Ricci (7-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) was announced as off due to an illness for Penne that reportedly was not related to her weight cut.

The weigh-ins took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The same venue hosts Saturday’s card, which streams on ESPN+.
