Kattar, Emmett cleared, Kelley heavy

AUSTIN, Texas – MMA Junkie was on scene and reporting live from Friday’s official UFC on ESPN 37 fighter weigh-ins, where all but one fighter on the card hit their marks.

In the main event, Calvin Kattar (23-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC) takes on Josh Emmett (17-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC) in a featherweight bout. Kattar was the first fighter to the scale in the two-hour window and weighed in at 146 pounds. Emmett arrived about 20 minutes later and was 145.5 to make the headliner official.

In the lightweight co-feature, Donald Cerrone (36-16 MMA, 23-13 UFC) meets Joe Lauzon (28-15 MMA, 15-12 UFC) in a fight between two longtime UFC staples. The bout was delayed from early May after Cerrone was sick on fight day. Cerrone came in at 155 pounds; Lauzon was 154.75.

The only miss came from Tony Kelley (8-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC), who was heavy for his bantamweight bout against Adrian Yanez (15-3 MMA, 4-0 UFC) to close out the preliminary card. Kelley weighed in at 137.5 pounds and will be fined a percentage of his purse. Yanez weighed in at 135.5.

The weigh-ins took place at the UFC host hotel in Austin, Texas. The nearby Moody Center hosts Saturday’s card, which airs on ESPN and streams on ESPN+.
