The pair came in under the 145lbs limit at this afternoon’s weigh-ins, as they prepare to clash in a bid to succeed Conor McGregor as the next champion of the Cage Warriors featherweight division.
All other main-card fighters also hit the mark after stepping on to the scales, with only Jean N’Doye failing to make the contracted weight for his Facebook prelim against Richie Edgeworth.
N’Doye, aiming to make the cut to bantamweight for the first time, could only go as far as 137.2lbs and therefore surrenders 25 percent of his purse to Edgeworth.
